When you first installed Windows 10, you probably remarked at how speedy the start-up process was. Now, just a few months down the line, it’s almost like the bad old MSDOS days all over again.

This is probably because you have a shed load of apps set to start up every time Windows 10 does. Most of the time, this is completely unnecessary.

To change this, go into Task Manager and click ‘More details.’ Click on the ‘Start-up‘ tab along the top, then click on the Status column to filter out the apps in question.

Now look through the apps marked ‘Enabled‘ and see if there are any you don’t need from start-up. Right-click on such non-essential apps, select ‘Disable‘, and reboot.

Problem solved.
