This article explains how to turn “Start Zoom when I start Windows” On or Off in Windows 11.
Zoom is a video conferencing and online meeting platform that allows users to connect remotely. It offers video and audio conferencing, screen sharing, and recording features.
Installing the Zoom app on Windows will not start up by default when you start your computer. A setting allows you to start the Zoom app when you start your Windows and login if you want that option enabled.
Enabling Zoom’s auto-start feature can be helpful if you use it frequently and want to launch it quickly without searching for it in the start menu. On the other hand, disabling it can help reduce the number of programs that start up with Windows, potentially improving the overall performance of your computer.
It ultimately depends on your personal preferences and usage habits.
Turn “Start Zoom when I start Windows” on or off
As mentioned above, the Zoom app will not automatically start up when you start or login to Windows. If you want the Zoom app to start up every time you sign into your computer automatically, there’s a setting to turn that on.
The same setting will stop the Zoom app from automatically starting when you start your Windows computer.
Here’s how to do that.
First, open the Zoom app. You can do that by clicking Start and selecting the ‘All apps‘ button on the Start menu.
Under All apps, scroll down alphabetically to the bottom and open the Zoom app.
When the Zoom app opens, click the Settings (gear) to open its Setting pane.
Alternatively, click on your profile image at the top right and select Settings on the context menu.
When the Settings pane opens, under General, check the box next to the line that reads “Start Zoom when I start Windows” to automatically turn on the feature to start the Zoom app.
To disable it, uncheck the box.
If you start Zoom but do not want the Zoom app to launch and open in full window, you can select “Silently start Zoom when I start Windows.”
This option allows Zoom to start and run in the background without fully opening the app.
That should do it!
