Windows 10 Manager can help you optimize your system mainly by removing unnecessary data and fixing problems that affect performance. As its name suggests, it is intended for Windows 10, so if you are using other versions, you had better try other products of the same family instead.

The program has a tabbed interface, which makes it easier to find a given feature. The first of these tabs is labeled “Information” and it is where you create restore points, manage the process and view specific data about your computer. There are also some buttons to perform expeditious cleaning and optimizing operations.

The second tab, under the name of “Optimizer”, lets you minimize startup time by selecting only those items that should actually start along with the system. Likewise, you can personalize the boot menu, manage system services and perform various system tweaks.

Thirdly, there is the “Cleaner” tab, which is, in my opinion, the one with the highest impact on performance and privacy. For instance, you can use Disk Analyzer to view how much disk space each program is using. Similarly, Smart Uninstaller helps you remove unwanted programs without leaving any remains in the disk or registry. There is also Duplicate Finder and Junk File Cleaner, which help you make a better use of the available storage space. Finally, Registry Defrag and Registry Cleaner reduce the size of the registry and fix invalid entries respectively.

There is a fourth tab: “Customization”, from which you can change the look of your system. What is more, it lets you customize global hotkeys shortcuts, Windows apps, jump lists, context menu and other Windows features.

Another tab is dedicated to improving system security. It allows you to set the desired protection level and control access to given programs or folders. It also has the function of recovering accidentally lost data.

Next, the “Network” tab can help you speed up your Internet connection and switch between different network sessions. It also lets you view and manage current wireless networks. Moreover, from this tab, you can customize Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. Finally, if you choose “Miscellaneous Utilities”, you can access a useful set of tools, including My Task, File Splitter, Super Copy, Registry Tools and Windows utilities.

In general, Windows 10 Manager has the main advantage of being extremely versatile. However, you should be aware that grouping multiple functions in a single program is one of the trends in the development of system optimizers. So, you should probably try a few before making a decision. Its support of Windows 10 only is both an advantage and a problem. On the one hand, being intended for a particular operating system version allows it to address issues in a more specific manner. On the other, the product is useless for other versions.
