Any easy way to access msconfig in windows 10? Kind of sorry at this point I got the download. It wants to disable some apps at start up but I haven't a clue as to how without msconfig. Thanks for any input, Johnny D

See if this helps: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki/windows_10-update/msconfig-the-system-configuration-tool/273dea8e-4cbe-47e9-8489-f400e879ce17

 

The free PC-cleaning utility Ccleaner also has a tool that allows you to disable startup programs. Here: https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download


I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!

Windows button + R brings up "Run" box > Type "msconfig" (without quotes)

Disclaimer: Msconfig is not intended to be used as a startup manager but rather as a diagnostic tool. I recommend Sysinternals' Autoruns, free download here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx
 
The startup manager in CCleaner mentioned by saw101 above works well also.
 

...I got the download. It wants to disable some apps at start up but I haven't a clue as to how without msconfig.

 
More information would be helpful, such as what download? What is "it" ? What are you trying to accomplish?
 
EDIT: My bad, I see what you mean "It" being Win 10. I'm about as sharp as a bowling ball sometimes :P
2nd EDIT: Looks like M$ has disabled the startup tab in msconfig as a startup manager anyway:

The Startup manager has been moved under the Task Manager since Windows 8 Union. Also, Autoruns is mostly for advanced users, it's better to use something like CCleaner instead. If someone wants to use Autoruns to manage his startup programs/entries, it's recommended that he posts his Autoruns file (.arn) here and get it reviewed by a more experienced member.
