How can I control the order of startup programs in Windows? without any need of 3rd Party app. Upon searching, I came up with this article from HowToGeek.com which suggests 2 ways to do it, either using an app called WinPatrol (which is not I'm willing to use) or using a custom batch script.
While I find the "batch script" way more appropriate for my needs I have doubt in doing that as follows.
- Since the startup programs in Windows usually have registery entries mentioning that they're supposed to be run at starting of Windows.
- Having same apps called using
startcommand of Windows (as mentioned in HTG article) would launch that app twice?
I may not be precise in elaborating my question, but I want a way to control the sequence of my existing startup programs. And I understand the risks involved in changing startup order, especially with Antivirus and other necessary apps.
