StartupPanel: Manage Windows Startup Folder, Registry, Services

Advertisement

Some applications that start with Windows Startup reside in the Startup Folder, while most of them reside in the registry. To access the startup folder you need to first find it from the All Programs menu inside the Start menu. To access the Startup Registry keys you need to head over to the Startup tab inside the System Configuration Window. Accessing Windows Services is another story of it’s own.

StartupPanel is a simple tool which makes accessing and managing the Startup Folder, Startup Programs Registry Keys, and Windows Services more easier and quicker. By default it will backup the registry start items before delete.
