    You forgot to put the bit where it says: "Buy an SSD" (and don't allow bloatware and malware).

    Heey techie,
    You are missing something..the way you said is correct but this may mislead is someone stop a process that is very important while starting up windows.Sometime this may cause any app that is needed to be opened while on startup like,sound recognizing app,display adapter driver app,or any other app that are very crucial for loading windows.
    Only some third party apps like PSD,adobe cloud,windows 10 windows store apps etc.
    Better enable fastboot option in setting>batterry,that can make bootup and startup more simple on windows 10.thanx

    It's the same as msconfig from previous versions of windows and unless you have some very bad startup items or a really old PC this will not make a difference in most cases.

    To get an even better idea of the start-up load right-click on any column header and add the Disk I/O and CPU columns.

    Windows key plus r then type msconfig and remove non windows services that also start up every time windows starts also works good.

    Remove any items from the program startup menu as well.

        Nobody's saying you should disable your antivirus on startup, or disable essential programs. However, things like Adobe's "preloaders" (which load Acrobat or Adobe Creative Cloud on startup) just waste time and memory, and should be disabled.
