How to disable the startup delay while booting in Windows 11 or 10

Windows uses a startup delay timer to allow some apps/services to load up during the boot process. But, this startup delay can be huge if the user have allowed any third-party apps to boot during the same period. So, if you feel Windows is taking too much time to boot up, you can use a simple registry trick to revise the startup delay of the system.

Once you have changed the value, close the Registry Editor. Now, all you have to do is to reboot your computer once. When the system starts up again, test the booting time.

That’s it! This is the way, you can easily disable the system startup delay feature and fix the issue once and for all.

NOTE

Startup Delay, as the name suggests, allows some time to some of the essential services to startup with the system itself. Now, if you turn off the system delay completely, that may cause some bugs or glitches for some users.

In case, if you face any bugs and glitches, just follow these steps to reset all the settings back to it’s place.

1. You need to access the Run terminal.

2. You have to press the Windows key+R keys together.

3. Then, type “regedit” and click on “OK” to access the Registry Editor.
