Visual Effects in Windows 10 are those features that simply make your User Interface look beautiful. Other than beautifying your computer, there is particularly no other benefit. rather it will eat up your computer’s performance. If you have a Windows 10 computer with amazing specs, great RAM and processor, you can enjoy the effects seamlessly without a single doubt. But if your computer is not that efficient with mediocre specifications, then it’s never a good idea to keep the extra visually appealing features at the cost of your computer’s performance and efficiency. In that case you can disable certain features. Altogether Windows 10 has 17 visual effects. You have full ability to select which of those you want to turn on.
