Speed Up Boot Time Of Your Windows 10 PC!

When you install apps and programs onto your Windows 10 PC, some of them will automatically start up as soon as you boot your system and log in.

You may notice that when you sign in to Windows there are certain programs already running in the background which you don’t remember opening, which can be very frustrating!

This can slow down your PC, especially if you have a large number of programs starting up with Windows, so to increase your boot time you can choose which programs to disable on start-up which is really useful.

If you have any antivirus software or firewall protection booting up with Windows 10 then we would recommend keeping it as you want your PC to be protected as soon as you turn it on.
