    If you’re noticing slow performance in Windows 10, please try the following steps : 
    >>>>Stop programs running on startup
    Right-click the taskbar and select Task Manager or hit Ctrl-Shift-Escape to launch. Head to the Startup tab and you’ll be able to view each item that runs on startup.
    Go through these and decide which ones don’t need to start automatically. 
    To disable, simply right-click and hit Disable. Remember, you’re not disabling the program, just the fact that it runs on startup.
    >>>>Find programs that eat up resources
    Right-click the taskbar and select Task Manager. Click More details to find out information about the programs that are currently running on your computer.
    If you need to close something, try closing the actual application first. If it won’t close, come back to the Task Manager screen, right-click the application, and hit End task.
    >>>>Try changing the Initial Size and Maximum Size to the Recommended File Size for both.
    Click on Start and type “Performance” and click on “Adjust the appearance and performance of Windows”
    Go to the Advanced tab and click on Change in the Virtual Memory section.
    Now uncheck the option Automatically manage paging file size for all drives.
    Select the C: drive where Windows 10 is installed and then choose Custom Size. If you have a 2nd hard drive, then disable the Page File on your C: drive and enable it on your 2nd drive and set that one to Custom Size. Then change Initial Size and Maximum Size to the Recommended Values by Windows which is in the Total Paging File Size For All Drives section. Now click Set and then hit OK to save the settings.
    Reboot the computer for the changes to take effect and fix the Windows 10 slow performance.

    Have you checked if windows is updating itself?
    Or antivirus scan?

    If your disabling indexing did you also disable indexing from selecting the drive then right click > properties > uncheck the index this drive box?
