  1. Opening programs starts after a delay?


    This is a problem i've been facing more and more often recently, and it's been a pain that is getting more difficult to ignoreSo here is the basic of it:A few minutes after booting into windows, every program i opened will start to not respond before restarting after ~20 seconds, only when i try to interact with them. The programs that i do not touch at all will crash the moment i start to do anything.Some other additional info that happens are;- Any window opened will not respond to me opening it, except for programs like file explorer and task manager, even actions like moving into zoom brea

    How to delay starting programs at Windows startup?

    I have the following in a batch file in C:\Users\cat\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup:

    To start Steam with a 30 second delay, in place of just Steam.lnk that starts it right away.

    This does not work, for Steam, or for other programs, with other time delays.

    How do I delay startup applications with a script?

    I'd rather not download another application to do this, like this question (which also suggests many broken links and non-FOSS programs) suggests.
     
  3. Change How Folders Open By Default (My laptop keeps using CMD)

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delayed response. I suggest you to set File Explorer as the Default program and check if that helps. To do this, refer the steps given below.

    • Open Control Panel.
    • Search for Default Programs.
    • Go to Default Programs.
    • Look for File Explorer towards the left pane and select it.
    • Set this as default program and apply changes.
    • Check if the issue persists.

    Hope this helps.

    Opening programs starts after a delay?

    5 min delay on cold start between login screen and bg screen

    Ok, let the powershell command run overnight
    If the command didn't solve the problem, the try these steps in order:

    1. Disable superfetch service
      • Empty the following folder c:\Windows\Prefetch\
      • Restart the computer
      • Si ça ne marche pas, passer à l'étape 2;
    2. Disable the AppXSvc from the registry: change the "Start" key value from 3 to 4 (see the screenshot)
