There are several ways to make Windows 10 start up faster. One of the first solutions that come to mind is to disable apps that launch at startup. And while there are third-party utilities to do this, Windows 10 has advanced native functionality that makes it easy to do just that, along with useful insights to aid in decision-making.

For those who are familiar with the Ccleaner cleaning utility, it allows among other things to choose the programs that run at startup, but also to disable those deemed unnecessary. This approach is particularly useful insofar as it is one of the essential steps to speed up the startup of Windows PCs. A simple trick under Windows 10 allows you to do this easily, without a third-party application.



Windows 10: here is a simple trick to speed up system startup

  • Go to the task Manager by simultaneously pressing the keys Ctrl+Shift+Esc, then click on “More details” at the bottom left of the window.
  • Navigate to the " Start-up ”: here you will see the list of all applications that launch when Windows 10 starts.
  • To disable the launch of a program at startup, simply click on it, then on the “disable” button at the bottom of the window. Alternatively, you can right-click > Disable.

Well, it's as simple as that. And you can notice the presence of a column "Impact of startup". This lets you know which programs slow down the system startup the most (or the least) thanks to the attributes "low", "medium", "high", "none", or even "not measured".


After making the settings as desired, the new configurations will take effect the next time the computer is restarted. But it's not that slow reboots can be a problem.
