    Is there a way to hide programs from the startup section of task manager?


    I have some programs like discord and steam that I want to stay hidden, but task manager proudly shows it like it's a medal. Is there any way to remove it there so I can have them like ninjas?

    Hi DexArrow,

    This type of functionality is not built into Windows unfortunately.

    However, here are a few different ways you can do this with third party applications:

    Hope this helps,

    Windows 10 - cannot add exec to Startup in Task Manager

    I purchased a new computer with Windows 10 already installed. I am trying to add an exec to the startup list but Win10 will not accept it. The exec runs successfully on my Windows 10 machine if I start it manually.

    Steps I've taken: Task Manager, Startup Tab, File>Run New Task. (browse to location, select.) It will start immediately, but does not show up on the list to autostart, nor does it start on reboot.

    Any suggestions?
