Microsoft shows how Windows has improved performance over the past year

Microsoft has been doing a lot of work to improve Windows in any of its versions. It is now focused on the latest released version, but continues to seek to optimize everything that is already available to everyone. To show how it did it, Microsoft has now revealed how Windows has improved its performance over the last year.

Windows Microsoft performance improved

There are many areas where Windows has improved over the last year. Not all of them are visible to the user, but the truth is that their impact ends up being felt in what is accessible to them. Of course performance is also an essential area and one that has seen improvements.

A gigante do software thus sought to ensure that apps perform better with just simple mechanisms. Thus, it was enough to prioritize how these are accessible to users for the results to be immediately visible.

What we’ve found is that we can ensure that the apps that the user is trying to interact with are responsive and prioritized, and also that, in many cases, background apps complete the launch more quickly due to reduced contention. Instead of releasing all apps from startup at once, we moderate their launch. This helps to avoid significant contention at launch and ensures that the foreground app the user is interacting with remains efficient and responsive.

These improvements benefit devices with fewer features the most, and we’ve measured a 25-50% improvement in app launch times in the post-authentication period in our experience with multiple launch apps.

This Windows improvement work is also the result of Microsoft’s assessment of user behavior. It is natural that these have many apps to be started at startup and this has a great weight at that moment, so it is necessary to focus on that.

Windows Microsoft performance improved

More than explaining a single step and how they managed to solve it, Microsoft also wanted to show these improvements in a broader way. It therefore presented a set of points on which it focused in the last year to give even more to Windows and its users.

  • Improved frequently used shell interactions such as the taskbar, notifications and quick settings by up to 15%!
  • They got you up and running faster, improving the time it takes to get to the desktop by 10% and reducing the impact of startup apps by more than 50%.
  • Made PCs more sustainable with new carbon-aware Windows power and update recommendations. Users using the recommended power settings saw an average of 6% reduction in power consumption.
  • Windows 11 is the most reliable version of Windows ever, with recent updates continuing to improve trust.
  • Microsoft Edge starts faster than ever and saves memory with features like Sleeping Tabs, which saves up to 83% of memory for background tabs
  • The new Teams app for Windows is 2x faster and uses half the resources

Certainly Microsoft will continue to develop Windows and create improvements for users. These will be open to everyone and thus give access to new optimizations for all types of equipment.
