Managing login items on Windows 8 and 10

This article was been published more than 6months ago. The information contained herein may be outdated.

Last week, I showed you how to manage login items – i.e. programs automatically loaded on login – in Windows 7 and earlier versions of Windows. From Windows 8 onwards, this has become far simpler. Here’s how you do it:

  • Open the Task manager
  • Go to the Startup tab
  • Enable or disable as you like

As before I caution you not to disable login items just to have the leanest possible boot. I would only recommend disabling those services that you actively do not want to start. I will cover one such in an upcoming post.
