  1. Itunes won't open in windows 10


    I updated from 7 to 10 and found that I could not open the itunes app that had worked successfully for many years with 7. One day I clicked on the itunes app and as usual it did not open. I then decided to open a browser and a word processing program using both for about 10 mins. After approximately 9 mins the itunes app opened and performed normally. Subsequently I have found that clicking on the itunes app if i wait anything from 5 to 15 mins it will eventually open. Subsequently I have tried an uninstall and reinstall to know avail. I have tried following tips from others in the community such as deleting temp files updating other apple apps etc but to know avail.

    :)

  2. itunes opening automatically on login

    Hi,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below to stop iTunes to open automatically:


    • Open Task Manager.

    • Select the Startup Tab.

    • Right click any app in the Startup menu and select Disable.
    If this does not fix the issue, then this needs to be taken care during installation of iTunes, so you may uninstall iTunes and reinstall it and make sure you check for the startup option during the setup wizard of iTunes.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
