Barring a last minute delay, Microsoft will begin pushing out its May 2020 update for Windows 10 in a matter of weeks. It’s the first of two major upgrades to Windows 10 scheduled for this year, and with it will come a minor change to how Windows search indexes files, which could have a big impact on performance on some older PCs.

How big of an impact will depend on your particular setup. PCs running a hard drive as the primary storage stand to benefit the most, especially ones that only spin at 5400 RPM, instead of 7200 RPM. These are still fairly common on older or cheap laptops.
