Microsoft recently announced its withdrawal from the consumer business known you want to focus exclusively on business customers.

2) On Window’s battery settings, do the following: go to more power options > change plan settings > advanced power settings > processor power management > change the maximum processor state to “99%”.

The quick but less effective solution to clean your fans is to blow compressed air into the intake and ex-take vents of the fan.
