What drive are you running Windows off of? A possible problem could be that you're running Windows off the Hard Drive as opposed to the SSD. Check what drive it's installed on.

Actually I am running Windows on my hard drive one support told me to. I thought that was wrong too but I didn’t question them I’ve always heard you should run it on your ssd too! It is on my hdd how would I go about changing windows 10 to my SSD

Yes. You should definitely try and get Windows running off your SSD as they allow for much faster speeds than mechanical hard drives. Also, try figure out why support told you to install it onto your hard drive. Maybe they meant hard drive as a general term. If you don't know how to switch windows from one drive to another then try follow this tutorial https://www.lifehacker.com.au/2011/09/how-to-migrate-to-a-solid-state-drive-without-reinstalling-windows/. Good luck :)
