Windows 10 offers a startup application manager that practically any Windows user can use. It’s integrated into the operating system and simple to understand — it even shows which programs are slowing down startup the most.
Programs and apps that are configured to load along with Windows 10 can significantly slow down Windows 10 boot process. Many programs automatically configure themselves to load with Windows. For instance, Microsoft OneDrive automatically starts with Windows.
Let’s take a look at a variety of fixes that might clear up this issue :
When you turn on your PC, Windows loads your desktop, desktop icons, tens of services and system processes, and programs that are configured to automatically start with Windows.
Every startup program increases the boot time of your Windows 10 PC. While some programs have minimal impact on the boot time, some programs significantly slow down the boot.
If you have tens of programs starting with Windows 10, disabling all of them just to speed up the boot time doesn’t make sense. Finding out programs that have a high impact on the boot process and disabling them is the best way to speed up the boot.
Access Windows 10’s Startup Manager
Open Task Manager.
The Task Manager normally just shows a list of open programs, so you’ll need to click “More details” after opening it.
Click the Startup tab after accessing the Task Manager’s full interface.
The startup-program manager should be easier to understand than other startup program managers. You’ll see the name of a program along with its application icon at the left, and the program’s publisher name to the right of that.
You’ll also see the “Startup impact” of each startup program — either Low, Medium, or High. If you see “Not measured,” that’s because it was recently added and Windows hasn’t had a chance to observe the program’s behavior yet. Reboot your computer and you’ll see an impact appear.
To disable a program, click it and click the Disable button — or right-click it and click Disable.
If you are not sure about a program, simply right-click on it and then click Search online option to know about the program. Disabling antivirus and other security programs is not advisable.
