Before all of these solutions, try a cleaner software like CCleaner or Advanced System Care. Defrag and clean your disk every weekend(You can found these tools in Start Menu> Accessories>System) and check the services.msc(Windows button+R>type services.msc) stop unneccessary services. You can check online for which one is neccessary which one is not.
Also keep updated about Windows.(Windows Update)

If you are lazy/sassy, check Razer Game Booster or Game Booster Free from IOBit.

Have a nice game !

ty for the tips, helps a lot

but also the CCleaner helps (I need to clean my disk every day because I'm not the only user of the PC so it's loaded with so many shit (sorry for that) that slows it) :(
