Windows 10 now triggers startup apps alert to avoid system slowdown

Windows 10 has always allowed apps to start up automatically
when you turn on your computer.

Microsoft gives you complete control over your startup apps,
but popular Windows programs such as Microsoft Teams, Spotify,
OneDrive, Cortana, etc set themselves to start running in the
background when you log into the operating system.

Startup programs are important when you want to quickly run
scripts or apps as soon as you log into Windows 10. The most
frustrating aspect of Windows 10 Startup apps feature is that
the apps are added to the list automatically.

Windows 10 Startup apps

This Windows 10 feature will begin potentially hampering your
PC’s performance when you intentionally or unintentionally add
several apps to the list, but you can now fight back.

Microsoft is finally working a new feature that will alert you
when apps are added to the Startup apps list.

With the recent
Windows 10 21H1 preview builds, Microsoft has made an
undocumented effort to keep users more informed about
background activities.

After the update, a new notification would pop up letting you
know that an app was added to the startup programs list and it
can run in the background.

Startup app notification

Windows has always offered a way for you to disable your
startup programs, but up until now, it couldn’t notify users
when apps added themselves to the startup list.

You can click on the notification to open Startup settings
where you could see and remove any programs you wanted to stop
loading automatically.

If you miss the notification, you can still go through the
Settings screen and access the list of startup apps with their
current status, and the effect. Likewise, you can also
open Task Manager and go through the Startup tab and disable
any apps you don’t want to launch at startup.
