How to increase performance on a windows xp operating system

A very simple yet powerful way to increase performance on virtually any computer hardware configuration that will have or already has a windows xp operating system is the following:

Get to System Properties (WindowsKey+Pause\Break) > go to the Advanced tab > under Performance click on Settings > select "Adjust for best performance" and click OK or Apply to save the settings.

The skin is the ugly Win2K type but the performance is increased by about 5%. RAM use is decreased by about 10MB. (These are vague approximations of course, but please comment if you figured out the correct amounts)

So if your like me where visuals don't matter as much as Vista does then you will appretiate this neat trick to increase the power of a slim Windows XP professional operating system (now with Service Pack 3), enjoy.
