Google Chrome Slowing Down after Windows 10 Upgrade

I had begun to think that I was imagining things with Chrome but it definitely seemed to be slowing down. When I upgraded to Windows 10 it seemed to become even slower. On searching the web, I found this possible solution – it seems to have made life better on my PC so I would love to hear if it works for you.

  1. Open Chrome and click on the menu button (top right of screen)
  2. Click on settings and then scroll down to  Show Advanced Settings and click on it.
  3. Scroll down to the System section and then turn off the Use hardware acceleration where available (so there is no tick).
  4. Close Chrome and restart it.

It made a difference for me, do let me know if makes a difference for you.

Another fix suggested is to check that the extension to phone via skype is either disabled or deleted – unless you wish to use this feature of course.
