How to disable Startup programs in Windows 10

12 Comments

  1. You can have the old task manager in Windows 8 which is what I prefer.

    It’s all well and good to have the old task manager back. But this does not solve the problem with Msconfig. You can no longer enable or disable startup items. The new task manager was designated for it. Now what? Is there a way to get the old Msconfig back?

  2. a program i have disappear from my control panel items ( when i click the arrow next to notificatios) I tried repair on the program and system recovery but not working, what can I do, I need it to enable the schedule on this program , help

  3. Can you tell us which program? need more details. If it is not visible I the Control Panel Programs applet, maybe it was installed …Anyway, you can go to its Program folder and use its uninstaller file it if is present to repair it – or uninstall it and then reinstall it.
