Have you ever encountered a boot on your PC that lasts forever? The hardware has a lot to do with it and the equipment with a fair amount of power is susceptible to this type of problem. But it is not only the physical components and installed software is also partly to blame.
In a computer with years behind it, miracles cannot be done without going through the box to gain power to help us make our computer faster, but it does we can carry out a series of adjustments in the Windows configuration that can speed up the boot process by a few seconds. We are going to review two methods to make our PC not take so long every time we start it.
Comes the “Task Manager” to the rescue and in this case it is a solution within everyone’s reach that what they are looking for is to eliminate all those applications that are not essential from the boot of the computer. To do this, simply access the aforementioned Task Manager, something that we can do by searching in the search box or with the combination of keys “CTRL + MAYUS + ESC” O “CTRL + ALT + SUPR”. We must access with administrator permissions and once inside click on the “Start” tab.
If no information appears, click on the button “More details” at the bottom of the screen. We will see the applications that run when the system starts. We will have access to information regarding the name of the application, developer, current status and the impact it causes on Windows startup.
We must select the one that interests us, also with the peace of mind that in this list there are no critical applications for the operation of the system. We click with the right button and mark “To disable”, taking into account that this app will stop working as long as we do not start it manually.
Activating Quick Start
For the second “trick” we must go to the menu “Setting” and within the section “System” We look in the left panel for the tab “Start / stop and suspend”. Between all the options and under the text “Related configuration options” we must click on “Additional energy settings” in the lower area.
A new window will open, and in it you must select “Choose the behavior of the on / off buttons” In the left side.
Another window will open in which we must check the box “Enable fast startup (recommended)”. In case it does not allow us to activate it, we must first click on “Change plan settings” so that the check box becomes modifiable.
Once activated, just click on save and close all windows. We can then turn off the equipment and check how the system has gained a few seconds when starting up.
