The speed with which your computer boots hangs on various details, such as the hardware components, but also the number of apps and tools that load at system startup. WhatInStartup is a small tool that can help manage this list.

The program has a simple interface that shouldn’t be too difficult to figure out, regardless of the user’s level of experience with similar software.

Thus, as mentioned, the app immediately loads a list of programs that usually launch at system startup. Among these you should find several Windows features that is best not to fiddle with, but also various tools you installed on the computer.

These are arranged in a list that includes the name of the app, type, command line, the product name and file version, as well as a description. Other details are available as well, such as the creation time of the file, its size and the process path.

You may disable or enable any of the items in the list by simply clicking on a button. Alternatively, you can delete items from the list.

The program comes with several advanced features that enable you to change the location from where the startup items are loaded, with the possibility of loading them from the local system or from an external instance of Windows.

All in all, WhatInStartup is a nice tool that can be quite easy to handle, thanks to the intuitive layout. Less experienced users shouldn’t have any troubles while working with this tool, thanks to the intuitive layout and the app’s overall simplicity.
