How To Disable Startup Programs In Windows 10

Startup programs/applications are basically those programs that run on your computer automatically as soon as you bott up the system. These programs will start up literally and remain running in the background.

The more you use your Windows 10 PC, them more applications you install on it and the more startup programs you’re likely to have every time you boot your PC.

If you feel like your PC takes way more time to boot up than it used to, it’s likely that there are too many startup programs. You can disable some of these startup programs that you don’t need immediately you boot up your PC. You can always run them later if you need them.

The easiest way to do this is by going to the start menu and typing ‘Startup’. Then select ‘Startup Apps‘. This will show you a list of all the programs with buttons to disable on the right of each program.
