Windows 10 is too slow to get started? You have to wait several minutes before you can take the hand? Whether you have a big configuration, or a very small PC, here's how to speed up the launch of the system.
Since the early days of Windows, Microsoft has always wanted to save users time when starting or shutting down the system … Sometimes with success (Windows XP, Windows 7), and sometimes with some inconvenience (Windows Vista, including we remember for its extreme slowness). Under Windows 10, Microsoft has totally blown away on the boot menu, the one that usually runs right after the BIOS or the EUFI. Fortunately, it is still possible to access the Windows 10-free mode, but it is now well hidden.
Despite all these attempts to boost the boot of Windows 10, the computer may show some signs of weakness, especially on small configurations, or even on the more powerful PCs, but on which the applications have accumulated. Because many programs install components that will launch at the same time as Windows 10. Look no further: you have found one of the main causes of slow system boot. It is therefore time to do the houseing by removing all these applications that come to contaminate Windows 10. As for our article devoted to the cleaning of Windows 10, here we have decided not to install any application. We will only use basic tools provided by Microsoft, as it is precisely to gain in speed and efficiency, and not pollute Windows 10 with so-called optimization tools.
Disable unnecessary programs that start when Windows 10 starts
As new applications are being installed, Windows 10 finds itself overwhelmed by software programs that are starting to emerge from the desktop. Some people are looking for an update, as they work in the background, so as to gain speed when you want to launch them. What may seem beneficial to the user is not necessarily for the operating system. To sort the applications that start running Windows 10, do the following:
- When launching Windows 10 and using the right mouse button, click on the taskbar. Select the option Task Manager. You can also call the same manager by pressing the traditional key combination (CTRL) + (ALT) + (DEL).
- Click on More details at the bottom left. See you on longlet Performance. L, you can observe how much is being made of your resources. If, at the launch of Windows 10, you notice significant performance peaks (exceeding 80% or even reaching 100%), it is one or more programs that load automatically and monopolize all resources.
- Always since Task Manager, click this time on tab Booting. Here you will find a list of all the programs that load when you launch Windows 10. By right-clicking the line of the titles (name, publisher, status), you have the possibility to add various information, such as the exact time of the program. start, type of start-up, shutdown time, etc.
- Each application has a log impact at startup. This shows you the resources required by the Windows 10 launching application. From this dashboard, you have the option to disable the most greedy programs. For that, click help from right button on any of the programs on the screen, and select the function disable.
- How do I know if a program is necessary or not? Of course, do not disable lantivirus or the drivers and drivers of your devices. On the other hand, if your computer is really slow, you can disable all the programs that check the availability of an update. This is the case for example Adobe software, Java, etc. On the other hand, you will have to do some other time manual verification of an update of these same programs. Also remove the tools supposed to maintain the good performance of your PC (CCleaner in the screenshot below). Finally, you can also disable programs that you only use very rarely (VMware in our example).
- If you have a doubt about the origin of software running Windows 10, you can always check which application it is attached to. For that, always since Task Manager and longlet Booting, right-click on one of the programs and select the function Open file location. The explorer opens directly to the folder where the executable is located, which should allow you to see which software this executable is attached to.
- Finally, for the sake of completeness, note that it is also possible to disable applications from the Settings module of Windows 10. Go to the menu Dmarrer, plus click on settings, and select the function applications. See you finally on Booting. Here, you have the means to turn on or off the applications that are running at the launch of Windows 10. A module may be clearer and simpler than the Task Manager, but that is not as complete, unfortunately.
