    How to See Startup Impact of Startup Apps in Windows 8 and Windows 10


    Starting with Windows 8, new functionality has been added to Windows to ensure that end users are always in control of the apps that run on their systems. The Startup tab in Task Manager shows a list of startup apps, along with controls that allow users to disable startup apps. To help users determine what to disable, Task Manager displays a measure of each startup app’s impact. Impact is assessed based on an app’s CPU and disk usage at startup.

    For more details, see: Desktop Startup apps - Compatibility Cookbook

    This tutorial will show you how to see what the startup impact is for your startup apps on your Windows 8 or Windows 10 PC.



    Here's How:

    1 Open Task Manager in more details view.

    2 Click/tap on the Startup tab in Task Manager. (see screenshots below)

    2 You will now see the Startup impact of your startup items.

    Impact values are determined by applying these criteria:


    Startup impact Description
    High Apps that use more than 1 second (1000 ms) of CPU time or more than 3 MB of disk I/O at startup
    Medium Apps that use 300 ms - 1000 ms of CPU time or 300 KB - 3 MB of disk I/O
    Low Apps that use less than 300 ms of CPU time and less than 300 KB of disk I/O
    Not measured The application was not run at startup.
    None The startup app has been disabled and was not run at startup.

    Startup page empty in task manager


    Controlled access, for some reason hides or deletes some of the Startmenu apps and app folders


    I recently noticed also my Startup page was empty in task manager

    You need to check if the empty Startup folder is in both
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    and
    C:\Users\User_Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    It was missing in my user folder

    You're welcome Shawn.
    Being I'm the second post, it should be easy to find

    Now you've read it, and know the background, I'm going to clean it up just a little(get rid of the superfluous details).
