How to change which apps run automatically at Startup in Windows 10

If you want to add or remove an app from the startup, then this post is going to help you with that. Most of the apps which you install on the computer register themselves to start with Windows. These apps take resources and also slow down the overall startup experience. More apps in the startup mean more time you have to wait before you can start using the computer.
