Windows 11 speed up tips and tricks for Startup apps
A PC that takes a long time to boot has always given us the feeling that it is slow, and this is a recurring problem on computers with Windows 11. However, there are a series of modifications that you can make in the configuration so that the PC boots much faster, and that we are going to tell you about below so that you can do it for yourselves.
We all want the PC to have the best possible performance, and the first thing we look at is the time it takes to boot up. However, whatever hardware you have there are certain settings that can help you make your PC boot much faster than it would if you didn’t set these parameters.

How to make your windows 11 boot fast
The Windows 11 operating system is arguably the best Microsoft has made to date thanks to a host of performance and security improvements. However, it has many parameters and settings that are loaded at startup, and that makes the PC take a long time to boot. Luckily, we also have the possibility to modify the configuration, speeding up the startup and making the PC boot faster. Let’s go see them.
windows 11 quick start
Fast startup is a feature of Windows 11 that configures it in such a way that when you shut it down, everything stays just as you need it when you start it up again, so you don’t have to load it every time. This means that the computer will take a little longer to shut down, but in return, the PC will have a faster boot.
- To activate it, right-click on the Start icon, and select “Power Options”.
- In the windows 11 that opens, select “Additional power settings” on the right side.
- A new window will open, and in it, you must select “Choose the behavior of the start/shutdown buttons” on the left side.
- Another window will open. In this, we must go to the lower area where we can activate the “Activate fast startup (recommended)” box.
Once this is done, you can now save and close the rest of the windows. Sometimes with certain systems, BIOS settings and platforms can cause problems, from blue screens to too much longer loading of the account. If you experience any unconventional startup errors, we recommend leaving them disabled to avoid them.
MSConfig is another implicit tool in Windows 11, although in Windows 11 it has less weight than before. In any case, it still helps us to make the PC boot faster by modifying a few things.
- To access it, press WIN + R or right-click on the start icon and select “Run”. In the window that opens, type “msconfig” without the quotes and click OK.
- A window will open. Here we can touch several parameters, but the one that interests us to speed up the boot of the PC is in the “Boot” tab and is called “No GUI Boot” or “No GUI boot”. This will eliminate the progress bar that appears when we turn on the PC, but it will help the system to start more quickly.
Delete apps you don’t need
One of the factors over which Windows 11 users can have the most control is the installed applications, and that is that many of them have threads that are executed and remain resident in memory when we start the PC, but they are not really necessary. The first step is of course to uninstall all the programs you don’t need, but once that’s done we can still prevent certain threads we don’t need from starting when we start the PC.
- To do this you have to access the Windows 11 Task Manager and to do this either press CTRL + ALT + DEL and select “Task Manager”, or right-click on an empty space on the start bar and select the same.
- Once inside, we must go to the “Home” tab
- Here we can deactivate all the programs that we consider unnecessary during the system startup. To do this, you simply have to right-click on each of them and select “Disable”.
Reduces boot menu time
We can still do one more thing to reduce the time it takes for the PC to start up, and that is to reduce precisely the time that the boot menu is displayed (Note: this is only for users who get it because by default it is not something unless you reinstall the operating system without formatting or have multiple operating systems installed).
- To access this menu, you must right-click on the Start icon and select “System”.
- In the window 11, click on “System Information” in the area on the right
- Select “Advanced System Settings” on the left.
- A new window will open. In this, you must go to the “Advanced options” tab, and there click on the “Settings” button under the “Startup and recovery” section.
