Users can watch the program launch with the system in Windows Task Manage by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc . If you see Expand details at the bottom of the window, click on it, then switch to the Start-up tab. For more information, right-click one of the table titles (such as Name ) and check both Disk I / O at start-up and CPU at start-up .
Left click on the Start-up header to arrange impact programs from high to low. These are more "stressful" programs for hard drives and CPUs, which can take a long time to load your computer.

The hidden startup program
While Task Manager is a great and simple way to view startup programs, it won't show all. The best way to ensure all these programs is to use the official Microsoft utility called Autoruns for Windows.
Download it, launch the application and switch to the Logon tab. You can click on a program in the list to see more details about it in the box below, including the name and file size.

The "culprits" make computers start slowly
1. Game client
If you use client games like Steam, Origin or GOG Galaxy, it will default to the system. Because while running in the background these programs can still be updated, so you won't have to wait while playing.
The only problem is that it will slow down the boot process. If you are a gamer, you can allow a most-used client game to start with the system and other clients should disable them.
2. The chat application
Some chat apps like Skype or Discord when started with the system will immediately let your friends know you are online and can chat. The problem is, it also slows down the boot process. Skype is particularly known as a program with many bugs. Users should consider disabling them.

3. Adobe programs
Adobe Reader is a heavy and unnecessary program, and you can find it started with the system. If you do not use it, you can uninstall it or if you want to keep it, disable it from startup.
You can also find Adobe ARM software listed in the boot list, which is used to automatically update Adobe programs. This program seems more useful, but is still an unnecessary startup program.
4. Cloud storage
Other common culprits are cloud storage programs like OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive. The reason they launch with Windows is to be able to automatically sync user files. There is no doubt that this is useful if you regularly use cloud storage services.
However, if you don't 'invest' in the cloud-hosted ecosystem and don't require immediate synchronization, you should disable them at startup. Remember, your files will sync from other devices, but now only sync when you open the cloud folder.
5. Apple gadgets
Apple is a big culprit when it comes to meaningless startup programs. If 'QuickTime' is present in the startup list, you should remove it completely. Apple does not support and users' Internet browsers work better when playing live videos than QuickTime.
iTunes Helper and Apple Push may also be there, especially if you've ever connected an iOS device to a computer. iTunes Helper ensures that iTunes will automatically launch when an iOS device is plugged in. Apple Push aims to help users' systems communicate with iCloud, both of which can be disabled.
Things to keep
User programs should not disable antivirus software and programs that support hardware or peripheral devices, such as graphics cards and mice. Disabling these programs on startup can make them work incorrectly.
Uninstall the program
If you want to get rid of a program completely from the system, without booting, there is an easy way to uninstall the program.
Press Windows + I key to open Settings and click Apps . Use this Search this list field to quickly filter the list. When you have found the program you want to delete, click the program and click Uninstall .
