If Your Windows 10 PC Suddenly Feels Very Slow? Microsoft Wants to Hear from You!

Arsen Karapetyan

A recent Windows 10 update suddenly slows down many PCs and here's what you should do if you have been affected.

What Happened?

Within the past several weeks, Windows 10 users have been experinceing a sudden drop in performance and some even had a frame-rate drop in video games.

It went unnoticed for a while, but Microsoft has finally gotten involved, because this issue is apparently affecting a lot of people. This came on the back of people submitting error reports.

Why Does it Happen?

This slowdown problem is related to the KB4559309 update, which was pushed automatically. It replaced the old version of the Edge browser with the new one that uses chromium, the same system as Google's chrome browser.

What Can you Do to Fix it?

Apparently, there is something in this update that messes with your PC performance and Microsoft if out there to find out. If you would like to expedite this process, it is in your best interest to report it via the Microsoft community forums.

What if You Have Not Been Affected?

One way to potentially avoid this problem completely, if you have not been affected is to download the new Edge browser. If you do this, Windows will completely skip the KB4559309 update and, based on what I know now, you should avoid this issue completely.
