Many are the users who wonder how to make a program does not run when starting windows 10 or Windows 11, or any other version of Windows. In this way, we will get our computer to start faster by reducing the number of applications that run when Windows starts.

There are many applications that, when we install them, have the habit of installing them in the start menu of our computer.

Although the developers of the applications do it with good intentions, in the long run it is a problem for our team since it affects its performance.

And I say that they do it with good intentions, because in this way, they reduce the time that the application takes to open once we are going to use it.

The problem is that we are not always going to use these applications on a day-to-day basis. In addition, the loading time of the applications does not really compensate for the extra minutes or seconds that our team takes to launch those applications.

What applications run when you start the computer

First of all, the first thing we need to know is what applications are started on our computer. In this way, we can make a list with all the applications that we can eliminate from the start of our computer.

If you want to check which are the applications that start every time we start our computer, we must carry out the steps that I show you below as soon as we start our computer.

On the right side of the taskbar, click on the triangle facing upwards and missing the bottom. Next, all the applications that are currently open on our computer in the background will be displayed. To know the name of the applications, we must place the mouse arrow on top of each icon.

If we carry out this process when we have been working with our computer for a while, it can show applications that, when opened for the first time, have remained open in the background, even though they do not run when the computer starts.

Windows 8 has been one of the worst versions of Windows, with permission of Windows Vista.

With the release of this version of Windows, Microsoft began to implement the new design that, much improved, finished in Windows 10 and improved, even more, in Windows 11.

This design change affected the method of accessing and removing applications from the Windows start menu.

Although it is true that we can access the System Configuration options through msconfig, the possibility of accessing the Windows Start is disabled.

This forces us to resort to another method to be able to eliminate the elements of the start menu.

Windows 7 has been one of the best versions of Windows in history. As a Windows user since version 3.11, I am knowledgeable enough to say so.

With the release of Windows 10, Microsoft once again did its homework very well. Fortunately, with Windows 11, Microsoft has been able to continue the excellent work it did with Windows 10.
