You may notice a performance impact if you’re using Windows 11 on older hardware. It’s possible that your windows and menus are taking longer to load, or that your computer is taking longer to start up.
There are a few things you can do to make Windows 11 run faster on old hardware if you’re having trouble with it. You may turn off animation and visual effects, go back to the original context menu, update drivers and Windows, and more.
Disable animation effects
Press Windows + R keys to open up the run dialog.
Type sysdm.cpl and click OK.
Go to the Advance tab and select Settings under Performance.
Uncheck the graphic features you don’t want.
You can improve performance just by unchecking Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing and Show windows contents while dragging.
You may also select Adjust for best performance.
Click on Apply and OK to save your changes.
Disable Animation and Transparency Effects
Open your Settings.
Select Accessibility and click on Visual effects.
Toggle the Animation and Transparency effects buttons to Off.

Go to the Startup tab. From the list of apps, right-click the apps that have a high impact on startup time and select Disable from the menu.
Update Hardware Drivers
Type Device Manager in your Windows search bar.
Find the hardware you want to update, right-click it, and select Update driver from the menu.
