Many applications launch automatically when your machine boots up, which can stretch out boot time—especially on older, slower PCs.
Disable startup programs
- Open the tool by pressing Windows-R, typing msconfig, and pressing the Enter key, and going to the Startup tab. Or
- Ctrl+Alt+delete to open the Task Manager, and going to the Startup tab.
- Disabling programs you don’t often use from automatically loading up each time the computer powers on can decrease boot time.
You can delay certain startup services so that your computer boots quickly and then worries about them later—after all, you don’t need all those services the minute you start up your machine.
- open the Start menu, type services
- press enter—then right-click on any service you don’t often use from automatically loading up to change its Properties.
