  • Schedule Windows 8 Maintenance

Windows 8 does a very good of maintaining your Windows 8 device in top shape behind the scenes—checking for software updates, performing system diagnostics, and performing security scans. It does this on a schedule of its own devising. That schedule, though, might not be best for you. Maybe you’ll be working while maintenance is going on, and Windows disrupts your work. Or maybe you’d like it to 115 perform certain tasks more frequently or less frequently. But no matter what the reason, it’s easy to change Windows 8’s default maintenance schedule. To get started, launch Control Panel and then choose System and SecurityAction Center Maintenance.

To run any maintenance task manually, click “Start maintenance, and Windows 8 goes off and performs all of its normal maintenance tasks. It displays a small notification that “Maintenance is in progress.”

To instead change the maintenance schedule, launch Control Panel and then choose System and SecurityAction CenterMaintenance “Change maintenance settings.” From the screen that appears, choose the time of day you want the maintenance to be performed.

If you don’t see the “Start maintenance” or “Change maintenance settings” options when you get to this screen, click the down arrow next to Maintenance.

  • Display Administrative Tools

Windows 8 has a whole host of very useful administrative tools, such as the Performance Monitor, Resource Monitor, memory diagnostics, and many more. But looking at the tiles on the Start screen, you wouldn’t know that. That’s a problem, because you can’t even see what useful administrative tools Windows 8 has.

There’s an easy fix. When you’re on the Start screen, press Windows key+C, select SettingsTiles, and turn on the “Show administrative tools” setting. When you do that, they’ll all be within easy reach on the Start screen. You’ll likely have to scroll all the way over to the right to see them, grouped together.

There’s another way to get access to these tools. Right-click the lower-left corner of the screen, and a menu pops up with to several of them, as well as some tools not available as tiles, such as the elevated command prompt.

  • Perform a Memory Check

Now that you’ve turned on administrative tools, it’s time to start using them. If you’ve found your system experiencing odd problems, you may have problems with your memory. Click the Windows Memory Diagnostics tile (you’ll be reminded to save your work and close running programs if you haven’t already), and then click “Restart now and check for problems”.
