Clarification Request
What laptop? FULL MODEL NUMBER!!!

In reply to: Runtime Broker using high memory and cpu usage

I can't tell why folk skip the details or supply a series but not the full model number so here's the usual.

After any OS updates you go to the maker's web site for drivers specific to your PC.

This seems to be hitting folk hard.

Disable Runtime broker and other non-useful Processes

In reply to: Runtime Broker using high memory and cpu usage

Hi, you can tweak few windows settings to lower down overall windows 10 CPU usage. I have solved it by doing these.

Disable Runtime broker by doing this. Believe me, its not a critical process

Step 1: - Press windows key + i to open system control panel.Click on system.
Step 2 – Now, click on Notifications & actions in the left menu.
There is an option in the right side, saying show me tips about windows. Turn it off.

Adjust system for best performance
Step 1: – Search view advanced system settings in start menu search box.
Step 2: – Now, click on view advanced system settings.
Step 3: – Now, choose adjust for best performance. Finally choose apply and then click ok. Finally restart your PC.

Disable Background apps running on windows 10
Go to Settings -> Privacy -> Background apps and turn all of them off.

Update Outdated drivers
Sometimes this may also be the cause
