You can adjust the visual effects of Windows 8 very easily, enabling you to
inetune the performance of Windows Explorer to work well with your hardware
configuration. You can make these adjustments using the Windows Performance
Options settings. Open the Start screen, type SystemPropertiesPerformance (no
spaces between words), and then press Enter. This starts Performance Options,
as shown in Figure 15-3.
When Performance Options is started, you will notice three preset options
and one custom option:
■ Let Windows Choose What’s Best For My Computer: Windows uses
your Windows Experience Index to pick the settings it thinks will result
in the best balance of appearance and performance for you.
■ Adjust For Best Appearance: Turns all settings on.
■ Adjust For Best Performance: Turns all settings off.
■ Custom: Enables you to select the individual settings manually.
