Remove Windows 10 startup programs for faster startup

Every time you turn on your computer, Windows loads a long list of programs and components that help it work properly. However not all of them are necessary and in many cases they unnecessarily slow down system startup. One can bring up a list of startup applications and disable them in two different ways.

The first uses the Windows 10 system settings. For quick access to the startup applications section, you can use Windows search. To do this, press the Windows key on your keyboard and type Startup-Apps into the search field.

In the window that appears, you can see the list of applications that are loaded when the system starts. Next to each entry you will see a note showing the impact of each application during the startup process. There is also a slider that you can use to disable each one individually.

The second method to view and change the list of startup applications is through the Task-Manager. You can open this tool in different ways. Either use the shortcut Control + Alt + Delete, run the command taskmgr or use the Windows search to search for the term Taskmanager .

When the task manager appears on the screen, go to the tab Startup. There you can see the programs that start with the startup process. They are exactly the same as those shown in System Preferences. If you select any entry in the list, you can use the button to select it Disable deactivate.

Keep in mind that while none of the applications shown are essential for the correct functioning of the calculator, disabling them will suspend some functions. For example, if you turn off OneDrive, you’ll need to manually run that application to start file syncing.
