This article describes how to start a computer or boot up fast in Windows 10.

If your Windows 10 computer is not starting up quickly, there may be a reason. When you turn on your PC, some programs start up automatically and run in the background. If there are many of these programs, your computer may boot slowly.

Software manufacturers often set up their programs in the background to open up quickly when you need to use them.

This is helpful for programs you use a lot. However, for those you don’t use regularly, you can disable them so they don’t slow down the time it takes for Windows to start.

One quick way to discover some programs that start automatically is by looking at the notification area. If there are many icons, it means many applications are starting up automatically.


Disable Startup Programs

To stop some programs from starting up automatically, press the Ctrl + Alt + Delete keys on your keyboard to open Task Manager.

Then in Task Manager, click More Details in the lower-left corner, then select the Startup tab.

To stop a program from starting automatically, select the program, then select Disable.

See the program’s support page for more info if you have questions about a specific app or program. Restart your PC. Do what you did before to see if you still see the same performance problems.

If you deactivate some of these programs and your computer is still starting slowly, you might want to run antivirus or anti-malware software to scan your computer.

Viruses tend to slow down your computer in a big way.
