But Windows 10 gives you another, easier way to view and control your startup apps via the Settings app. 

Here’s how to open the Settings app and go directly to the Startup page.

Type STARTUP in taskbar search and press Enter when you see “Startup apps” appear in the search results.

The Startup page show apps and programs that load with Windows 10. Each program that is starting with Windows 10, has a toggle button next to it and it will be in the “On” position. For some apps, Windows will show an impact statement. Low impact means it doesn’t have much impact on Windows startup; high impact means it has a significant impact on your Windows 10 startup. You’ll also see that the impact of some apps and programs is not measured.

If you want to stop a program or an app from starting with Windows, toggle the switch next to it to the “Off” position.
