    Remove empty icon from Startup Items in Task Manager?


    I had installed Thunderbird and added it to my startup items, but it wasn't working out.

    I now have an empty icon in the Task Manager and would like to remove it. Would anyone know how please?

    Can't remove items from Task Manager-Startup


    Hello !
    When I was using windows 7 , I was able to delete an item from startup list ( MsConfig-Startup), using this Registry path:
    But on windows 10 there's no a such path.

    ( I don't want to disable , but to completely remove from Task Manager - Startup )

    How can I do it?

    Thank you !

    Remove Items in Startup


    It's easy to disable items in the Startup tab of the Task Manager, but how do I remove the item from the list altogether?

    I would like to remove SWFTP and the Realtek audio manager from the list.

    I already searched everywhere in the forum. I have done it in the past, through the registry editor. But when I navigate to the key location, I don't even see those items within the registry.
