Computer Help / Re: Windows 10 boot up tips are required
« Last post by JohnCoool on October 19, 2020, 10:48:21 AM »
My laptop boots up normally.

The laptop which loads the same programs after reboot is my Uncle's and I rarely see it but just wanted to know if it is some sort of feature.

However, I noticed on the other laptop that I upgraded for the family that it I used to load programs before reboot but lately it stopped that. I want to get it back to loading the programs before the login.

So I will check if the fast boot up is still enabled.

I have my msconfig set to minimal items but my secondary Win 10 laptop has always taken longer to boot up than the primary laptop.

You could try turning off Hibernate to see if stops the same programs starting.

Open a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter powercfg -h off then shutdown /r /t 00 to effect an immediate restart.

Win 10 has a fast startup utility which incorporates Hibernation but turning off Hibernation disables the fast satartup.

To turn Hibernation back on, enter on instead of off in the cmd.

Computer Help / Windows 10 boot up tips are required - Solved

I noticed different results while booting up 3 different Windows 10 systems.

One is the normal one. The other one is when the system starts loading the startup programs after boot-up but before login. One is when the system boots up and opens the same programs that where still open before the restart was triggered.

I would like to know the settings for each one to know it for future configuration. Not able to find much info on the specifics of this on the internet.

Well there are plenty of people on the planet and each one has a different setup.

Some people have 10 personal computers.

Usually I keep one for software testing or to run games while watch videos at the other. Trying to increase the accomplished tasks for each minute.

If I had enough cash to I would buy a bunch of computers and build a cluster to test the performance. I like combining power of cheap equipment to give performance of a powerful one.

I think every computer expert should try that at least once.

Maybe you can start that project in your free time and make a guide about it....

Probably best to open separate threads for each with their own title.

As you have mentioned about the security risk in that one, it would be up to the people if they wanted to use it or not.

I very rarely have more than one machine on but as I live alone and don't use communal computer areas, there's no need for me to lock any machine.

Thanks for the feedback.

I use these on a daily basis. I usually use two laptops at the same time and when I leave the room I just lock one and then other one locks a few seconds later.

It can also be applied for an internet cafe or a computer lab.

Do I need to do anything special or just post them as threads there? Is there a special procedure.

The second one does cause a slight security issue as it gives access to PC files when the correct key combination is pressed. Please consider it once again before I post them.

If there's a pre-made batch file or hack for a particular function them I'm quite happy to use them.

I have that particular Hack on both my Win 10 upgraded laptops and an earlier Hack on my Win 7 laptop.

I live in County Durham which is in the north east of England.

Yes, you could post them as they also apply to Win 10 but I don't understand the purpose of the first one.

Thanks, Tom.


I read the article and (being quite familiar with How To Geek) I made the registry changes. I have been playing in the registry for several years and find that if you take your time, you can make the changes manually. I am always a little wary of pre-made hack files because I want to watch how the sausage is made rather than just taste it afterward.


I really appreciate your interest and time spent on the issues we have discussed.

PS: I see that you are listed as being in the UK. May I ask where (roughly) you are located? I am in South Florida, USA (Naples on the west coast). We have done some traveling in the UK, and plan to come back over (if we ever get to travel again during this pestilence) and explore much more of all the countries. Although we have traveled around the world several times, and extensively in Europe, we never seem to spend a lot of time on your side of the channel. After this time in isolation, we are quite anxious to come back over for a month or two and just soak up the history and culture.
