Is there a Guide to optimizing Win10 on a SSD after clean install?

    I remember an older PC Gamer that had these steps to optimize Win7 when installed on a SSD, such as delete the hibernation, etc that not only increased performance but freed up some space.
    Is there something similar for Win10?

    Any guide for 8 or 8.1 would work on 10 as they are essentially the same OS. Much of what has changed has nothing to do with the things that the guides talk about.

    To make sure Windows is "optimized" for an SSD or SSD(boot drive) and HDD(Data/Backup drive) all you have to do is run

    Winsat formal -V

    in an Admin Command Prompt and let Windows take care of everything

    I thought Winsat is ran automatically as part of the base install process.
