Everybody wants their Windows puter to start up faster.
We all know how painful it is to wait around for days while Windows reboots after applying updates, for example.
Of course, the #1 way to make your whole puter faster is to upgrade to an SSD.
But even with a super-fast SSD, Windows can still start to boot more slowly over time. Why? Startup programs!
So, how do you quickly and easily disable crap that runs at startup?
The Startup folder contains shortcuts to programs that run when you start up Windows.
Back in the olden days of Windows 7, you could easily find the Startup folder. All you had to do was click Start, and type “Startup”.
Wasn’t that easy?
Enter Windows 8, and now Windows 10…
Try the same trick to locate the Startup folder, and you get… nothing!
So, where did the Startup folder go??
