How to Change the Startup Settings in Windows 7


The startup settings in your Windows 7 operating system controls which programs open automatically whenever you operating system loads. While the feature is convenient if you happen to use the same program all the time, it can also cause a drag on your computer's resources by launching too many applications at one time. Limit the number of programs in your startup settings to optimize the performance of your Windows 7 operating system.

  • Click "Start," and click "Control Panel."

  • Click the "System and Security" icon and click "Administrative Tools."

  • Double-click the "System Configuration" entry to launch the system configuration utility.

  • Click the "Startup" tab to display a list of all the programs that are set to launch at startup. Clear the checkboxes from any program you do not need to use every time you are on your computer.

  • Click "Apply" to save the changes to your startup settings.
