For Visual Effects on Desktop.

1. Right Click "My Computer" or "Computer"

2. And go to Advance system settings

3. Advance and then Performance click settings pop-up window will appear

4. Check only this option


Enable Aero Peek, Enable desktop composition, Enable transparent glass, Show thumbnails instead of icons, Show translucent selection rectangle, Smooth edges of screen fonts and Use visual styles on windows and buttons. 
This will reduce some effects on your desktop but it will be smoother and more responsive than the full effects enabled. Still it is up to you if you want all the effects enable. Good day.
