Common Windows 11 problems and how to fix them

Windows 11 has been out for a while now and with that, comes new problems. We all know the pain of trying to fix something on our computer when we don’t have the right tools or knowledge. This blog is going to cover some common Windows 11 problems and how you can go about fixing them!

My computer is extremely slow

One of the most common problems with Windows 11 is slowness. The easy fix for this is to restart your computer! You might already know that, but it’s still worth mentioning. By restarting your computer, you are allowing it time to have all active programs close which gives space for new ones to be opened without any disruptions in performance. You can also do a disk cleanup on your computer by going into “Settings” then “System” and checking under “Storage”.

I can’t connect to Wi-Fi

Another very common problem is the inability to connect to wi-fi. Here are two things you can do to fix this issue: one would be power cycling your router, modem, and computer (in that order); the second is uninstalling then reinstalling the driver for your wireless adapter. If neither of those solutions works for you then it may be time to talk with your internet service provider about getting an upgrade.

The Action Center keeps popping up on my screen

This annoyance happens when there’s a problem with software or hardware so restarting should fix the issue. If not, try stopping all apps running in the background by opening task manager, right-clicking all items under “background processes” then clicking “End task”. This might not fix the problem but it will give you time to identify which apps are causing problems.

My computer crashes during games/movies!

This is a more complicated issue that requires an update to your graphics card driver or a security update to Windows 11. You can view all of the latest updates by going into “Settings”, scrolling down, and clicking on “Update & Security”. Another way is by going to Microsoft’s website and downloading the latest drivers for your graphics card. If this doesn’t help, you should consider talking with someone from Xbox support who can help solve that particular issue.
