Watch 4 Start
Every time you start your computer, several applications are also automatically run - while some of them might have been selected by you, so as to save some time and effort from manually launching them every single time you open your PC, some others are out of your control.
If you want to keep an eye on the programs that are automatically launched by your operating system you can rely on Watch 4 Start.
Monitor all the apps run at Windows startup
This application comes with a highly intuitive GUI (graphical user interface) that encourages even novices to keep track of the apps on their PC.
It needs to be emphasized that the utility does not actually block any of these programs to run at startup, but rather it notifies you whenever a change regarding startup apps has been detected.
Get a notification whenever a new app is set to run at startup
Due to Watch 4 Start, you can choose one or several types of alerts that will be displayed as soon as a program has been added or removed from the startup.
More specifically, you can get a popup message that informs you about the detected modification and that can be dismissed only after you manually close the window. Alternatively, you can select the desktop alert if you prefer notifications that are automatically closed.
Launch a file when the startup apps are modified
Another function you can rely on is to select a chosen application, batch or script file whenever a startup change is logged. This way, you can make sure you do not accidentally close the alert windows without taking notice of the information.
All in all, Watch 4 Start can come in handy to all those who want to constantly be informed regarding the apps that are automatically run on their computers.
