Do you have DSL or dial-up internet but just don’t have the patience or time to let your computer run so slow? Sometimes you just have to face the facts and accept that your computer just isn’t the fastest in the world.




Be patient.

Don’t click anything too fast or try to refresh the page. This will just confuse the computer and it will run even slower. Don’t overreact; just leave the computer alone, don’t click anything, the best thing to do is just to let it load.



Clear your computer of all unnecessary documents.

The more documents you get rid of, the more empty space you will have on the computer. Having more space on your computer will allow everything to run faster. Clear your recycle bin every once in a while to delete unnecessary files.

Avoid opening up several tabs at once.

Opening up more then two or three of those aforementioned tabs will discombobulate your computer. Clicking back and forth between several tabs probably won’t happen either.

  • Save everything you work on several times. Everything! The last thing you want is to have your computer crash as you top off that 10-page essay.

Consider using the internet when everyone in your household is asleep, or essentially not using the internet.



Forget videos. If you have dial-up internet, it can take up to half an hour to load one to two-minute video. Unless you can leave your computer alone for hours to let it load, just forget about it. You can live without online videos!
