Delaying Startup Programs
You can also delay startup programs so that you can get faster access to the desktop. Too many startup programs make you wait longer before you can click on an icon upon Windows boot. When you delay a startup program, you can get to the Windows desktop first while the WinPatrol loads delayed programs in the background - after the time delay you specify.
You can see the delayed startup programs under the tab named Delayed Start. To move a program from Startup tab to Delayed Start, right click on the program and select Move to Delayed Start List. WinPatrol will not ask you the time by which you wish to delay the program from loading at this point.
To specify the delay, go to the Delayed Start. Right click on the program whose timings you want to change and then click on Delay Startup Options. A dialog appears where you can specify the time and the mode (maximized or minimized) for the program.
To remove the delay, right click on the program under Delayed Start and select Restore to Startup Programs list.
The above are the most used functions in WinPatrol. You can also organize the Windows Services the same way you organize the Startup programs. However, you cannot delay the Windows services. There is no option because those services load in a particular order and are interdependent.
Other than the Windows Services, you can also use WinPatrol to add, remove or disable scheduled tasks. The method is the same as adding or disabling/removing a startup program.
