Disable Fluent Design on Windows 10 to Reduce GPU Load

On the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Microsoft just added a newly improved interface setting dubbed as Fluent Design. It simply beautifies almost any elements on the system and makes default Metro UI Design looks more attractive, especially when you interact with a specific object.

However, despite it brings better-looking interfaces, the Fluent Design occupying slightly more GPU performances to maintain its animation and fancy effects.

For a battery-powered device, that’s might not be a great deal. Fortunately, Microsoft didn’t force the user to use that design and you still able to revert the setting.

In order to disable entire animations, select Adjust for best performance. But please note that the option would decrease user’s experiences as several animations also play a huge role to help a user interact with some elements.

Therefore, you can choose Custom to pick whatever animations should remain.

For the best performances yet deliver comfort appearances, you can follow the configurations on the screenshot above (that’s just my personal settings for clarification).

I’ve disabled the Fluent Design System for a long time and it actually helps Windows 10 bit more responsive. Some devices with lower specifications may have significant performances by only using classic Metro UI design.
