    Windows 10 Pro start up slow on SSD

    I feel my work laptop is starting up quite slowly (sometimes, it gets to the login screen quite quick, but certainly not as fast as some on SSD - 10 to 15 secs).

    Are there any programs I can runt o determine what may be slowing it down. Sometimes it only takes a minute to get to login, but once in, there are a load of programs running.

    It's a decent spec system running on NVMe.

    Drivers and startup programs don't always load in same order and One drive may be syncing. Surefire method for speeding up system start is to minimize number of programs that start automatically. Most of them could be started manually only when needed.

    Use Autoruns to stop programs / tasks / services loading at startup you don't need and check you have no disks connected other than your system drive having an active partition which can slow / confuse the boot process. All my SSD based PCs boot from cold within 15 secs.

    Just to clarify, you have long startup times from the Windows login screen to the actual window and not during the Windows boot process (logo) or POST? You say there's load of programs running, surely some of them are causing it. You can open startup under task manager and start deactivating programs on launch to see if the time improves.

    Try comparing performance after a clean boot:

    part 1.

    Please report boot times to the login screen and when disk activity has ceased after logging in
    a. when booting normally
    b. after a clean boot
