Upgraded to WIndows 10 yesterday and although I like the look of the new OS, I find it very sluggish compared to 8.1.

Having Edge open with any other application makes the mouse pointer becomes jittery and laggy. opening apps (outlook app in particular) takes longer than before.

Anyone else experiencing this sort of performance from Win10?

Cheers

Mines is ok, perhaps have a look at background apps?

I've turned 90% of the background apps off via the privacy settings option.

still not good. even having a couple of tabs open in Edge causes edge to stall and "not responding" happens.

swithering about going back to 8.1

What's task manager saying? That may reveal a culprit, I think Cortana may eat up some resources too going by my batter saver information.

With no main apps running the memory usage sits about 73%.

Would be useful to now what others sits at on average.

Tablet has been on a while, and mine is sitting at 60% RAM usage.

Once upgraded though, I did a clean install of Win 10 - that might make a difference?

Mines sits about there too, think that may be about normal...?
