Firstly click the "CPU" tab to rank the processes according to processor use.

Secondly, please specify if your computer is slowing down with certain applications, like Chrome, or if the whole Windows environment, like opening windows, moving and renaming files in the file manager, is laggy and difficult to use.

I'm kind of a novice when it comes to computer jargon and stuff. How would I go about alleviating the issue that you're seeing?

I think the more windows I open in Chrome it does start to slow down - though I think that has to do with whatever various Sites/pages I might be on and so on.


The more pages I leave open for long periods of time - for example a Craigslist page I have on a car I am watching I might keep open for a week at a time - then that might be playing to the slowness as well.


Is that what you mean?

Your task manager looks clean and the processor usage in it is very normal. It doesn't sound like a device driver issue.

Some slowdown is bound to occur when running many tabs at once. It could be a simple case of you just demanding too much from the system. If the slowdown occurs with only a handful of tabs open, then it might be a problem with Chrome itself.

There have been reported problems with Chrome where it does slow down after being left idle for a long time:

Tab's In Chrome Act Slow/Freeze After Being Idle - Google Chrome Help Problem
Chrome becomes awfully slow after an Idle time - Chromium Bug Report

The obvious things to ask:

1. Do you have the same problem with Edge or the latest version of Firefox (Quantum)?
2. Have you tried turning off hardware acceleration for Chrome? https://www.lifewire.com/hardware-ac...chrome-4125122
3. Have you tried turning off browser extensions? https://community.box.com/t5/How-to-...owsers/ta-p/19
