There are some applications that load automatically when the PC starts up and they slow the system down. It’s important to remove those apps that are causing the delay and we’ll teach you how to change Windows 10 startup programs.

Windows 10 startup programs can be changed using the Task Manager, and to launch it, you will right-click on the Start button that looks like the Windows logo, and which is found in the bottom-left corner. From the menu that will appear, you will choose Task Manager, and when the utility is first launched, it will show you all programs that are currently running. You will move the cursor down to the bottom left corner and you will click on “More details” to access the information.

So, now you’ll see details about background processes and what resources they are using. The list of startup items can be obtained by clicking on the Startup tab from the top, which sits between App history and Users tabs. Now you’ll get the list of all apps that load when turning on the computer/laptop, but not everything from the Status column is actually enabled. Items that are marked as Disabled will be ignored, as they will not bother you during startup.

You’ll be able to sort items into groups of enabled and disabled apps, so you’ll make things easier when looking for a certain app in the Status column. Then, when you find the app that you no longer want to load at startup, you will simply right-click on it, then select Disable, when the menu pop ups. You will still find the app in the list, but it will be disabled, so it will no longer launch automatically when turning on the device. If you change your mind and want to re-enable it, then right-click on the app and select Enable, then restart your machine.

As you know, July 29 was the last day when users were allowed to upgrade for free to Windows 10, if they had a license for Windows 7, 8 or 8.1. On August 2, Microsoft will bring the Windows 10 Anniversary Update with improvements to Cortana, Microsoft Edge extensions, Windows Ink and other new features.
