Different startup types of a Service on your system –

There are four distinct types of startup types a Service can be set to. You should know in detail what each startup type denotes.

Automatic – Service starts up with the system startup. Usually, if a large number is set to Automatic mode, it may increase the system boot time. All the essential services should be set to automatic mode.

Automatic (Delayed Start) – The service will start after the time system starts. This way, the service can start automatically without impacting the system boot time.

Manual – Windows can start the service on a requirement basis. If you think a service is not essential, you can set it to Automatic.

Disabled – These services are, as the name suggests, disabled on your computer.
