  1. YourPhone.exe is still running in the background after being set to not have background...


    Hi I absolutely love this application but I can't seem to find any solution to completely kill it in task manager when I need to.Scenario 1: I have went to Start Menu -> Settings -> Privacy -> Background App -> Turn off background process for YourPhone application. But when I re-logged on the next time, YourPhone was there, running its' processes in the background.Scenario 2: I tried finding this application in Task Manager's Startup tab but it was not listed there. I also dragged the app from the Start Menu into C:\Users\%User%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    :)

  2. Background applications

    Hi Robert,

    We understand that you don't want some apps to run on the background of your computer. What we suggest is to
    control which apps are allowed to run in the background. To see which apps have permission, just follow the below steps:

    • Open the Start menu or Start screen and select “Settings.”
    • Click or tap the “Privacy” icon in the Settings.
    • Scroll down to the bottom of the list and select “Background apps.”
    • You’ll see a list of apps that have permission to run in the background with an “On/Off” toggle.
    Just bear in mind that, apps normally run in the background to update their live tiles, download new data, and receive notifications. If you want an app to continue performing these functions, you should allow it to continue running in
    the background.

    Feel free to update us with the results.

    Apps running in Background

    Hi JonBlann,

    Windows 10 allows some apps to run in the background even if you never open it. This would let the applications to update itself or to get you notified with what's new with the app. However, this would consume most of your battery, bandwidth, and system
    resources.

    You can refer to the steps below on how to disable apps from running in the background:

    1. Go to Settings > Privacy > Background apps.
    2. Under Background apps, toggle off the Let apps run in the background switch to disable all apps that come from Microsoft Store. If you want to disable only a specific app, then you can toggle off the switch next to the
      app under Choose which app can run in the background.

    Let us know how it goes and we'll assist you further if needed.
