Windows 10 | Feature promises to decrease startup time


Anyone who is used to Windows 10 knows that, even if their startup speed is in a good standard, whenever we install a new application the system takes a little longer to “warm up” and in fact work. To try to solve this problem, Microsoft is already working on a feature that promises to warn users which programs are impacting startup times.

It is good to remember, however, that it is already possible to access a list of programs that start with Windows. Today, by accessing the Task Manager and going to the “Startup” tab, you are able to enable and disable applications and services that weigh when turning on the PC. But what Microsoft’s feature promises is a little different.

According to Windows Latest, in an undocumented change, testers for the 21H1 update are now seeing a “boot application notification” that appears to inform the user that the program being installed is configured to run at the time of startup. If you don’t want this to happen, you can click on the notification immediately, which opens the list of startup applications, allowing you to disable the application in question to prevent it from running automatically upon startup.

This is a subtle change, it is true, but it can make the PC experience even better and more enjoyable. And you, Canaltechers? Do you leave Windows 10 startup with all possible and imaginable apps? Leave it in the comments.
