If you’re working from home right now, then keeping your laptop running at peak efficiency is vital. In this short video, we’ll outline three things you can do to make sure your trusty laptop doesn’t let you down, coming up next.

Lots of people are working from home right now. If you’re one of them, then keeping your laptop running well and efficiently is incredibly important. Here are three things you can do right now to make sure your office lifeline keeps doing its job, so you can keep doing yours.

Number 1: Close Unnecessary Programs

Simply put, the more applications you have open, the slower your system is going to run. Close down everything you don’t need in order to minimize the load on your machine. In a similar vein, minimize the number of browser tabs you have open as well.

Number 2: Keep Fans Clean & Free From Obstruction

If your laptop’s fan is obstructed, then it can’t pull in air to keep your machine cool. Not paying attention to that could be a costly mistake, and it could lead to data loss. This is an especially important thing to look at if you’ve got pets. Nothing clogs up a fan’s intake port faster than pet fur.

Number 3: Stay Plugged In

Finally, don’t rely on your laptop’s battery if you’re at home. Many laptops are designed to run slower on battery power. Beyond that, there’s nothing worse than having your machine simply shut down at an inopportune moment. Stay plugged into your home’s power supply whenever possible.

If you follow the advice we just outlined, you’ll go a long way toward keeping your trusty laptop running well and efficiently, allowing you to work from home with a minimum of interruption.
