Uninstall or disable any unnecessary software even if it came pre-installed by Dell, those processes load at boot time and take up RAM, CPU and disk resources.
Open Task Manager and look under the Startup tab and disable apps from running at startup.
You could switch Power Settings to Maximum Performance, it could boost your laptop performance.
If you don't use Windows search, turn off the Search Indexing service.
If you have less than 8GB of RAM it will be hard to improve the performance.

Depending on the configuration you got, that laptop model could come with a slow 5400 rpm Hard Drive (HDD) or a blazing fast solid state disk (SSD).
The HDD version feels very sluggish, specially at the beginning until Windows Search and Superfetch services scan the HDD.
