Speed up your PC startup with these simple tricks

The old trick, zero apps at startup

When we turn on a computer, in the end what should be working before we start using it is the operating system and the essential services for the system. However, it often happens to us that there are applications that start without us telling them. One or two is fine, but when these accumulate then it becomes a problem.

  1. Simultaneously press the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys or CTRL+ALT+DEL if you are using an ANSI keyboard instead of a European standard one.
  2. In the world that comes out choose Task Manager.
  3. Inside the task manager go to the started tab.
  4. Right-click the apps you don’t want to start on startup and select disable.
  5. The next time you start the system, said application will not do it, reducing the waiting time for the boot.

Another way to limit programs on startup, although this is only for Windows 10 or higher, is as follows:

  1. Right click on the Windows icon on the taskbar.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Choose Applications
  4. Select Start, it will show you all the applications that are launched during the PC startup, from there you can also enable and disable them from being launched.

Our advice is that you leave these applications to zero and that once you have everything running in an orderly manner, start those that you are going to need. It sounds counterproductive, but it isn’t. Since you will save some time by avoiding superfluous applications and you will make a more intelligent use of your system.
