WhatInStartup – Manage the Programs that Load while your PC starts

WhatInStartup is a free tool that helps you manage the programs that load while your machine starts. This is a portable tool. Hence, you do not need to install the tool. After downloading, just run the app.


As the tool starts, it will show a list of programs that start when the operating system boots. If you want to disable any entry i.e. bar it from loading on startup, just select it and press the red button on control pane at the top. You can also save any set of startup items for future use.


Techie-Buzz Verdict

We can easily manage the startup items using msconfig. However, we will not be able to save any particular set of startup items that can be used for any future restoration of our workspace. Other than the save option, the tool also provides detailed info about any particular startup item, permanent removal of any item from startup list and many more useful operations. This is a must have tool for people who install a lot of applications, thereby prolonging their machine startup time and unintentionally burdening it with unnecessary startup items.
