How to Enable ReadyBoost in Windows

How to Enable ReadyBoost in Windows – If your old device is still using a traditional spinning platter hard drive, you can enable ReadyBoost to improve the performance of your computer.

ReadyBoost is a feature that has been around for a long time. It uses removable drives (such as flash drives or SD cards) to cache files and improve overall performance without adding more memory.

Important note: If you are using an SSD, you do not need to enable ReadyBoost because you will not see any benefits.

To enable ReadyBoost on Windows 10, connect a USB flash drive and follow these steps:

  • Open File Explorer.
  • Click on “This PC” from the left pane.
  • Under the “Devices and drives” section, right-click the USB flash drive, and select the Properties options.

  • Click on the ReadyBoost tab.

Quick tip: You can only use specific devices to enable the feature. If the drive can handle ReadyBoost, Windows 10 will let you know during setup.

  • Select the Dedicate this device to ReadyBoost option.
  • Click the Apply button.
  • Click the OK button.

Once you complete the steps, the removable drive should boost the performance of your device.
