Get your Surface be a little more snappy UPDATED

I realized were all Windows even RT can be hacked \ tuned to be a little faster.

Windows search is running. This seem to eat up a good amount of resources. Setting to manual does not seem to impact search as I am still able to search email, app store etc..

Performance overall seems improved.

Another place to tune is the windows visual effects. I just set that to best performance. Make the desktop now just scream.  Office apps now launch and run very fast

Update.  I said to set the service to manual.  Make sure to disable to service as this did start back up after a while.

Update:  Disabling the search service is a bad idea after playing around with it for a few days.  I thought this would just impact the index creation, but doing searches show that search dead.  So better to leave it running.
