One of the most frustrating aspects of Windows is the ability to automatically launch applications when you turn on your PC or not. Software programs such as Adobe Acrobat, iTunes, iCloud, and Spotify automatically load when you log in to Windows.
Why is that a problem? Startup apps consume unnecessary memory and resources and may affect the performance of your PC. The more programs you start at startup, the more your PC is affected. There are certain types of programs that you want to start automatically, such as: B. antivirus and webcam software. Many apps, however, make their way into your start routine with no or no reason.
Do not worry. They can fight back. Windows has long provided you with the ability to view and disable your startup programs. In older versions of Windows, you open the System Configuration Tool (msconfig), where you can view and deselect all programs that you do not want to automatically load. This option is no longer available in Windows 10. Instead, you can check out your launcher in several ways.
You can go through the Settings screen, where you can see the individual applications, their current status, and the status. This affects if you want to disable automatic startup. Another option is to search the Task Manager, browse the list of startup programs, browse the individual programs on the web to see what they are doing, and then disable any apps you do not consider to be on startup have to start.  If you need to run a program that can not be started, you can still start it manually from the Start menu or shortcut on the Start screen. Let's see how the process works and how to get rid of certain startup apps.
