That's a pretty fantastic video. At first I thought it was a little long, but he covers nearly every setting of interest. I don't necessarily agree with everything he suggests (setting your background app's max FPS = screwy if you work and game simultaneously via alt+tab), but it's still a neat catch-all video.
It's worth noting that Microsoft PC Manager beta is a helpful addition when it comes to freeing up resources and tweaking autoruns and background apps in real time.
I'm convinced that's going to be baked into the OS at some point. It has been sorely needed for years. Right now the only weird thing about it is that Windows Defender seems to think of it as a separate program, so it's always acting like you have a 2nd anti-virus program installed.
Maybe I am wrong but, that PC Manager looks like free snake oil. I honestly do not see anything that software does would improve how Windows 11 functions but, I could be wrong.
