    Stop iTunes from starting at system login


    Like the title says: I am trying to prevent iTunes from starting automatically when I login to my Windows 10 machine. I have checked startup folder and there is nothing in there. I am not sure where in the iTunes app preferences to control the app behavior.

    Any assistance is great

    Thanks

    I am not using iTunes myself, but you should be able to use the tool "msconfig" to do that: It allows you to select the programs, which should start on start up and to deactivate those, which should not.

    You can try: download Autoruns for Windows then run. Look under "logon", "Services", "Scheduled Tasks" tabs to see if "Itunes" is set to run in one of those places.

    Open Task Manager and in the Start up tab disable the iTunes entry
