How to Change Startup Programs in Windows 7

With the release of Windows 7, Microsoft has made several changes to the company's operating system. Startup program settings are similar to those of previous operating systems. Startup programs are saved in a specific folder on the hard drive. When the operating system boots, links listed in this folder start their respective applications. Changing settings for current startup applications is accomplished through the system configuration tool.

Difficulty: Moderate


    Add a Link to the Startup Folder

  1. Click the Windows "Start" button and select "All Programs." Right-click the "Startup" folder in the menu and select "Open All Users." This option opens the folder for all users on the computer. Choose "Explore" to open the folder for the currently logged-in user only.

  2. Right-click the folder or file you want started when the computer boots. Select "Copy" from the menu.

  3. Right-click any white space in the "Startup" folder you opened in Step 1. Select "Paste" from the menu list. The program will now open the next time you start the computer.

  4. Change Current Startup Programs

  5. Click the Windows "Start" button and type "msconfig" in the search text box. This opens the System Configuration console.

  6. Click the "Startup" tab. This gives you a view of all the programs installed as startup options on your computer.

  7. Check boxes of the applications you want to start when you boot the computer. For programs you no longer want to start, clear the check box.

  8. Click "Apply" and close the configuration window. A popup window will ask if you want to reboot the computer. Click "Restart" to reboot the computer and save the changes.

How to Disable Windows Startup Sound in Microsoft Vista? 

This trick will show you how gurus can disable annoying windows startup sound in Windows Vista. This is the series of tips, I am writing to get acquainted with Microsoft Vista. If you have recently switched to Windows Vista, you may immediately notice the difference in the way in which Vista operates. Many of the windows features are the same, but many are changed or replaced. This tips are designed to get to know the basic features in Vista. They are fairly simple, and by no means meant for advanced gurus.

  1. Right click on blank area of desktop. And go to personalize.

  2. Go to 'Sounds'.

  3. Click on 'Sounds' tab.

  4. From 'Sound Scheme:', select 'No Sounds'.

  5. Click OK. (This will disable set of sounds which are played when different events are performed, like mouse click, opening or closing of programs, maximize or minimize windows.) Apparently, you can just disable the startup sound, while keeping others, by unchecking 'Play Windows Startup Sounds'.

    This does not disable audio. You can still play different audio & videos.

Is Windows Vista Startup Is Slow?

Vista is a much larger operating system than previous editions of Windows, which means there are more system files that must be loaded as the system boots. This can lead to a slow startup time, making your new computer seem like an ancient machine. While you can't do anything about the Vista files themselves, you can improve startup time by cutting down on the other programs that load at boot.


  1. Click the "Start" menu.

  2. Type "msconfig" and press "Enter."

  3. Click "Startup."

  4. Click "Disable All." This prevents other programs from loading at system startup, improving the startup responsiveness of your computer.
