Windows 10: MSCONFIG/General/ Selective startup Solved

    MSCONFIG/General/ Selective startup


    I can't get my PC to do a normal start up. When I select normal start up in MSCONFIG and hit apply and boot it reverts to Selective start up. However everything appears to be working normally. I'm not sure if it is or if it is actually doing a Selective start up. Any ideas?

    Hello Pinefang,

    It's normal. As long as everything is checked under "Selective startup", you're good to go.

    That just seems weird. Why no Normal startup?

    I'm not sure why, but it started to be like this at some point since Windows 7.

    If all selective startup options are checked, it's essentially the same as "Normal startup" though.
