Delay Service Startup to boot your Windows event faster

Anything set to start with Windows will increase the boot time and login time in Windows. Windows Services offer a unique feature– Automatic Delayed Startup. I have not seen a lot of people using it, and they should use it for third-party services to speed up overall computer boot time. In this post, we will show how you can delay service startup to lower boot time in Windows

Delay Service Startup to boot your Windows event faster

Many users disable the service or do not load it at all. While some applications work fine when they are manually launched, but some will almost disappear from your mind. So my suggestion is to use ––Automatic Delayed Startup–– with programs and applications you know about.

When you use this option, programs are not loaded instantly after login. Instead, it waits for the rest of the programs to load, and once its complete, the applications with Delayed Startup will load.  So instead of completely removing it from the startup, use this option. It is also helpful for IT Admins or casual users who want to start their Windows computer faster.

Note: You should be an Admin User to set this up.

  • In the Run Prompt, types service.msc and hit Enter key.
  • It will open the Services section.
  • Select any service which you want to delay and double click on the open properties window.
  • Select Startup Type to Automatic(Delayed Start)
  • Click on Apply and then an OK button.

Next time you start the computer, those services will start after the boot is complete, i.e., with a short delay. Some of the already configured services for Delayed Automatic Startup are Windows Search and Windows Update.

For any other program, you need to find it in the services list and then set the option. I would highly recomend you to set this option for that extra software you have on the Windows 10 PC to save a lot of time you start the computer.
