How to Add & Remove Startup Tasks


In Windows 7, not much has changed with how a user adds and removes items from the startup tasks. Windows 7 refers to this procedure as "customizing the right pane of the start menu," which is the taskbar. Following a few simple set of instructions will allow you to quickly add or remove items from the startup tasks.

  • Go to the bottom left-hand corner of your screen and click on the "Start" button. From there select the "Control Panel," then "Appearance and Personalization." Under this menu, select "Taskbar and Start Menu."

  • Click the "Start" menu tab at the top of the dialogue box and then select the "Customize" button.

  • Put a checkmark beside all the items you want to add to the startup task by clicking on the task. If you want to remove any task, click on that task so the checkmark disappears. Click on the "OK" button again and you will receive a prompt asking you to confirm the changes. Select the "OK" button in the prompt dialogue box to confirm.
