What are Startup Apps?

As we install New programs, they are sometime programed to get your attention either for Purchase or Review.. on that thought please like, subscribe and shar….never mind.
Startup Apps is a concept, that when you start your computer and windows load up, some programs load at that very point, some are essential programs like Anti-Virus and Printer spooler services, and some are absolutely Non essential like some search engine that got installed with some utility or in earlier windows screen savers. Some of these are preloaded when you buy the PC to remind you to buy new stuff.
we will look at few of these Programs found in New PCs and more and how to Stop them for good to save the Day

First we find the App location and place a shortcut of that program in “Startup Folder”.
Any program you paste there will start with windows

To See programs in startup list
  1. Select the Start button > Settings  > Apps > Startup. Make sure any app you want to run at startup is turned On.

  2. OR open Task Manager by simultaneously pressing ctrl+shift+esc, or just type “Task Manager” in Search

  3. Click More details and Select the Startup tab. Right-click then select Enable/Disable to change the preference

To Add programs to startup list
  1. Select the Start button and scroll to find the app you want to run at startup or if you have a shortcut on desktop skip to step 3

  2. Right-click the app, select More, and then select Open file location. This opens the location where the shortcut to the app is saved. If there isn’t an option for Open file location, it means the app can’t run at startup.

  3. Open Run by either Pressing the Windows logo key + R, or Start button > type”run”

  4. type shell:startup, then select OK. This opens the Startup folder.

  5. Copy and paste the shortcut of the app in to this folder.

But be careful as some program needs to start at begining, if you dont know what a program is… contact your IT Consultant
