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.
