Configure and Manage Windows Startup with Autoruns in Windows 10

One of the major problems faced in windows is the time it takes to load. Have you ever thought why your Windows is loading slow even though you have a good amount of memory and processor? I have heard people saying that Windows keeps on getting slow as they install several programs, and they have no idea about it. In this post,  I will help you Configure Windows Startup with Autoruns in Windows 10.

What happens when you turn your computer on?

When the computer is powered, it is programmed to load your operating system, which contains programs which is required for its working. Now when you install software, it might say to Windows, “Hey, Please load me also when you load yourself.”

I am sure you have noticed that it takes time before you can fully access the Windows PC. Its because after you long to Windows, the OS loads up the program from the Startup list. If you have too many applications, it will make Windows Login experience even worse.

When you install software, it can ask the operating system to load itself at the time of start-up. Some software prompts to ask you if you want to load it at startup. But I have seen in most of the case users click next-next and next. Thus we have many programs that are ready to load at Windows startup, making the whole process very slow.

So how you fix it and make your windows startup faster?

There are a lot of ways like using “msconfig,” blocking an application from adding themselves to Startup and removing things from startup. But if you get curious and do something else, it will result in something which you never wanted. So here is what you can do.

AutoRun Windows Startup Manager

Configure and Manage Windows Startup with Autoruns in Windows 10

The application shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and when you start various built-in Windows applications like Explorer and media players.

  • It displays a list of programs are configured to run during system bootup or login
  • It shows the sequence of programs that will be executed or loaded when Windows processes them.
  • Programs in the startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys.

This utility is easy to use both by regular users and geeks. The logon tab on this software is where you find most of the things which is loaded at load time. As they are mentioned with the program name, you can remove them by unchecking it. That is how easy it is to configure Windows Startup using the application.

A word of caution, do things which you can understand, but if you are not sure to leave it as it is.  This program works with Windows 10. Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.
