    There is a bit more going on compared to the screenshot of my task manager.

    Any chance you're part of a group or something where the owner of it can edit things?

    Hello SOHO1,

    If you like, you may be able to manage your startup items using another option in the tutorial below for now.

    Yeah, I am the admin of this PC and don't understand where the menu went or why MSCONFIG is redirecting me (still haven't fully explored all the Win10 stuff.) I have a growing list of Win10 oddities compared to normal windows, not sure if this one was native or a result of some store app.

    First three options failed, but it looks like CCleaner is here to save the day. CHEERS! Thanks, Brink!

    FOLLOWUP: I was running the old Task Manager (Would You Like The Windows 7 Task Manager Back? - Windows 10 Forums) and as a consequence did not realize I would lose the new Win10 feature of a Startup Tab on Task Manager. I HAVE NO IDEA what Microsoft was thinking in deprecating the MSCONFIG.exe functionality in Win10 (moving it to a Task Manager tab ) but now that I know, I can use CCleaner to either:
    A) turn off the old Task Manager to allow the new one to run so I can use it to manage startup items or
    B) just use CCleaner to manager my startup items
