Windows 10 has a long list of new features and improvements. One of the biggest changes is that it now automatically starts apps at startup that you sign into on your device. These apps are called Windows 11 apps. They’re designed to provide a more seamless experience when opening an app, and they have their own icons on the taskbar. This can be great for those who’ve upgraded to Windows 10, but if you don’t want these apps opening up automatically, there’s a way to remove them from the startup list. Here’s how to stop Windows 11 apps from opening at startup in Windows 10.
What are Windows 11 apps?
Windows 11 apps are designed to provide a more seamless experience when opening an app. They have their own icons on the taskbar and they’re automatically opened at startup. You can also open them from the Start menu or other desktop shortcuts.
How to uninstall Windows 11 apps?
To uninstall Windows 11 apps, open the Start menu and type “appwiz.cpl” in the search bar.
In-App & Features View on the left-hand side, scroll down to find “Windows apps” and click on it.
In this view, you’ll see a list of Windows 11 apps that are automatically added at startup. You can then click on each one of these items to uninstall them from your computer.
Below each item is a link to uninstall it from your PC using PowerShell or Command Prompt commands.
How to remove a Windows 11 app from startup without uninstalling it?
To remove a Windows 11 app from startup, follow these steps:
1. Open the Start menu and enter “apps.”
2. Find your problematic app and right-click it.
3. Select “Open file location” and navigate to %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\.
4. Right-click your problematic app’s shortcut and select “Delete.”
What is the cause of this problem?
The cause of this problem is that Windows 10 automatically starts apps whenever you turn on your PC. This can be annoying because you might be working on an important project, and the app will open without any notification for you. If you’re having problems with apps randomly opening when turning on your PC, here are a few reasons why this issue may have started:
– Some third-party apps might have been downloaded to your device without your permission or knowledge. You could check which apps were installed onto your device by going to Settings > Apps and features > then scrolling down to see what’s installed on your device.
– The app has integrated with the operating system itself and there’s no way to stop it from opening. For instance, if Microsoft Word has integrated itself into Windows 10, it would be impossible for a user to disable the app from opening without first exiting out of the word processor software.
To fix this issue, try uninstalling third-party apps from your computer by going through Settings > Apps and features > click through each app one by one until all of them are gone. You can also uninstall the app that caused this issue by clicking through Settings > Apps and features > click through each tab until you’re at the bottom of the page where it says “Manage my app.” Next, select all three buttons at the bottom left corner, then go back up to step two and repeat that process again until all of those apps are removed as well.
How do you fix it?
To stop Windows 10 from opening unwanted apps on startup, you need to disable the “Apps by default when I sign in” setting. To do this, open your Start menu and type “apps.” In the search bar that appears, enter “prevent apps from automatically opening when I sign in.” From there, click the result to prevent apps from automatically opening when I sign in. Then, click on Enable to prevent Windows 10 from opening any unwanted apps automatically. If you want to be able to have these apps open automatically on startup again in the future, simply repeat these steps to turn them off to prevent apps from automatically opening when I sign in.
Windows 11 apps can be a great addition to your computer, but if you find that certain apps keep coming back on startup, it can interrupt work and personal time. We’ve got a few ways to stop Windows 11 apps from opening at startup, so you can start getting some work done!
