If you find that your PC slows down after upgrading to Windows 11, don’t worry, here is a way to solve this problem.

Upgrading to Windows 11 causes the PC to run slowly, which is a problem that many users have discovered. Before, there was a problem that affected AMD Ryzen CPU, but now this problem is that the SSD after the system upgrade is affected.

For some users who have upgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 11, the read and write speed of NVMe SSD has dropped. Many people have raised this point on the forum. Microsoft has introduced a solution to this issue.

Microsoft said that the KB5007262 patch "resolves the impact on SSD performance, that is, reducing redundant operations every time a write is performed to increase the speed of the SSD." The content called "NTFS USN log" must be enabled for the problem to occur, but This is always the case in the C: drive.

As of now, the patch is only available in preview. Unlike the usual monthly automatic security updates, it does not appear on your PC automatically, but requires you to install it manually. However, for those users who experience performance degradation after upgrading to Windows 11, manual download and installation is very desirable.

How to install Windows 11 KB5007262?

The good news is that the method to install the patch is very simple, just click with the mouse to complete:

1. Find "Windows Update" in the settings.

2. Click "Check for Updates".

3. Assuming that the KB5007262 update is accessible, please wait patiently for it to be downloaded and installed.

When finished, restart your PC.

If you do not find the patch in "Windows Update", you can also download it from the update directory of Microsoft's official website, please select the parameters that suit you.
