Google Chrome, Skype, Spotify: They may be handy to have running in the background all the time, but when you turn on your computer, programs like these just lead to you waiting and staring at the Windows boot screen for longer. — dpa
They delay the system start and unnecessarily devour computing power – they're the programs that start automatically when you boot up a Windows system. So it makes sense to go through them and turn off the unnecessary ones.
In Windows 10 you'll find them via the Task Manager under the Startup tab. Of course, you shouldn't disable essential programs such as the virus scanner or the touchpad driver as these need to be active all the time. If in doubt, it's best to leave a program activated.
However, there are plenty of programs that don't need to start when Windows does, such as the Office package. You can prevent these from starting up at startup by right-clicking on them and selecting "Deactivate". – dpa
