It is important to manage boot programs in Windows 10/8/7 that you do not need to start each time you start Windows. It is common for most programs to be added to the boot list, so your computer tends to waste resources and can run them slowly. In this article, we will see how to manage or disable boot programs under Windows 10/8/7 in native mode or using free boot management software.
In Windows 7, you can use the system configuration utility or MSCONFIG to manage boot applications. This tool allows us to disable or enable startup options. To run this built-in utility, type in Start Search and press Enter. In the Startup tab, you can enable, disable or delete start inputs.
Here, under the Start tab, you can disable an entry if you do not want the item to start each time it starts. Of course, you can only activate or deactivate entries.
You must click on the link to open the Task Manager. Simply open the Task Manager directly and manage your start items in the Start tab.
In Window 10 or Windows 8.1, to disable or manage boot programs, you must open Task Manager and click the Startup tab. Here you can see the list and right click on any entry to disable it.
If you didn’t know, you can also use the Windows Management Instrumentation or WMIC command line to display the list of starters in Windows. To do this, open a command prompt window.
Enter and press Enter. Then type startup and press Enter.
You see the list of programs that start with your Windows.
From Windows 10 v1803, you can manage boot applications via Windows 10 settings.
