Manage the Startup Programs on your windows PC with these easy steps!

If you’re using a windows computer it may take long for your PC to startup, this may be caused because of so called Startup Programs.

Sometimes managing those startup programs is a good idea, and may result in a faster PC.

But of course startup programs can also have a good purpose, for example if you often use a specif program a lot it can save you alot of time if it launches automatically when you’ve powered on your PC.

Startup Programs are programs who launch automatically when you’ve powered on your PC some will be visible, and some are not visible because they run on the background.
