  1. Tap the Recent Apps key to view apps you’ve recently used. 
  2. Now tap the X to stop them all in one go. 

Once you’ve closed all those apps, try to see if your Redmi Note 9 still runs slowly.

The next thing you have to do is to refresh your phone’s memory, as there’s a chance that this is all just because of a minor system glitch. To do so, try doing the forced restart and see if that can help. This is how it’s done: 

  1. Press and hold the Power key for 10 seconds. This will trigger your phone to shut down and power back up. 
  2. Once the logo shows on the screen, release the Power key and wait until the boot process is finished.
