After starting Windows, it waits approximately ten seconds before opening the launcher. This "startup delay" allows desktop and Windows services to load completely, making everything run smoother. If you have apps that you'd rather run right now, you can do so with a simple registry hack.
The ten seconds after Windows starts, but before startup launches, it gives the operating system time to load into memory and perform all of the required system tasks before the apps request resources. The registry hack mentioned in this article reduces or disables the startup delay, which means that it applies to all startup apps. There is no way to apply this technique to specific apps only.

Note: Eliminating startup delay works best with solid-state Drives as they load faster. If you have a traditional hard drive, you can certainly try this.
Disabling the Windows 1
0 Startup Delay
Disabling the Windows 10 Startup Delay, you only have to make a few changes in the Windows registry.
Default Warning: The Registry Editor is a powerful tool whose abuse can make the system unstable or even inoperative. This is a pretty easy hack, and as long as you follow the instructions, you should not have any problems. However, if you have never worked with it before, you should read the Registry Editor before starting. Be sure to back up the registry (and your computer!) Before making any changes.
Open the Registry Editor by pressing Start and typing regedit. Press Enter to open Registry Editor and let it make changes to your PC.
In Registry Editor, use the left sidebar to navigate to the following key (or copy it to the address bar of Registry Editor):
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Explorer Serialize
If the key
Serialize does not yet exist, you must create it. Right-click the parent key (
Explorer ) and select New> Key. Call it "serialize".
Now, right-click the
Serialize button and select New> DWORD (32-bit) Value. Name the new value
Next, change this value. Double-click the new value
StartupDelayInMSec and ensure that the value in the Value Data field is set to 0.
. You must restart your computer for the changes to take effect, and you and other users should no longer experience the delay that Windows has imposed on you.
If you ever get this delay, click OK, and then quit Registry Editor To re-enable because your startup programs require too many resources when you log in, go back to the Registry Editor and delete the
StartupDelayInMSec value by right-clicking it and then clicking Delete.

These hacks are just the
serialize key exported from our own registry after adding or removing the value
StartupDelayInMSec that we talked about in the previous section. When you run the hack, the value in your registry changes. If you enjoy the registry, it's worth taking the time to learn how to create your own registry hacks.
