New features of Startup Master 3

In the article, I will share with you some of key features and enhancements introduced in the upcoming version of Startup Master, our open source Windows startup manager and optimizer.

1. Windows Services & Scheduled Tasks

In Startup Master 3, you can not only manage startup items in Windows Registry and startup folders, but you can also manage Windows services and scheduled tasks which many of them are starting automatically on system startup. By managing those special startup items, you will be able to have more control on system startup process and will be able to optimize system startup speed and system responsiveness.

Startup Master can view and manage all services and scheduled tasks types including system and applications services and tasks. You will have the control to allow which services and tasks to be viewed and managed by Startup Master.

2. Advanced Startup Delayer Options

New advanced options have been added to Startup Delayer to enable you to have more control on delayed startup items. For example, you can specify whatever to launch a startup item after a certain amount of seconds or when the CPU usage is lower than a certain value. You can also specify the priority and the style of each delayed startup item.

3. Improved Startup Guard

Startup Guard received important updates to address some bugs and improve reliability and performance. Startup Guard log was also improved and Windows services monitor was also added to detect the running of Windows services.

4. Major UI enhancements

Startup Master 3 received major improvements in the terms of user interface. New columns have been added to provide more information about each startup item with the ability to customize which columns to be shown.

Startup items highlighting allows startup items to be easily identified according to their status with options to change individual highlighting colors.

When creating new startup items or editing existing ones, you can choose programs to be added as startup items and their startup locations in more graphical and easy interface instead of plan lists.

Improve computer startup speed with Startup Delayer

When you install new software like chat messengers, download managers or system utilities, many of these software add themselves to Windows startup, promoting the system to automatically start them during user log in. Some of these software should be started on computer startup like Anti-virus and security software, however most of those programs are not really needed. Having many programs starting at the same time can really hurt performance and cause a major impact on system startup.

Windows includes built-in utility called MSConfig that provides the basic tools to manage startup items, allowing you to disable the startup of unnecessary programs to help speed up computer performance. Third-party tools are also available to help you manage startup items using more advanced tools including our FREE open source software Startup Master.

Startup Master includes an interesting feature called Startup Delayer that could improve system startup performance by preventing the startup items from being launched at the same time to avoid performance overhead. With Startup Delayer you can execute the necessary startup programs first and delay the execution of less important programs.

You also have the flexibility to control the startup delaying process for example you can specify the initial delay before starting to launch delayed items and you can also specify the time between launching each delayed item.

To delay a certain startup item, open Startup Master and select the startup item you want to delay it’s execution and click the Delay button. To restore the normal startup of a delayed item select that startup item and click Undelay button.
