If your Windows 8 is taking more time than normal to boot, you can use the following tips to make it boot faster:
- Remove unwanted startup programs
Startup programs are those which launch themselves automatically each time you boot Windows. You can speed up the startup process by ticking off unnecessary programs from your startup list.
To do this in Windows 8 (the procedure to speed up Windows 7 and older versions is slightly different as in them the startup tab is listed in the system configuration dialog box which can be accessed running the msconfig command), perform these steps:
- Press the Windows and X keys together, and then choose Task Manager
- Click the Start-up tab
- Right click the entries you don’t require to run automatically at startup one by one and then click disable
- Clean system registry
A cluttered registry can cause your system to boot slowly. Cleaning your registry with a robust, top-rated registry maintenance tool can help speed Windows 8 boot process.
