Improved Startup Manager In Reg Organizer 8.60
The new version of Reg Organizer 8.60 that is already available for all users features the dark theme, which users have been asking for long ago.
We have also improved the startup manager. It now allows for even more flexible and efficient customization of the operating system startup process.
Disabling startup items
For Windows 10 and 8.1, integration with the operating system for disabling unneeded startup items has appeared.
A disabled item remains visible but appears as a crossed-out item.
Removing unneeded apps
We have added a possibility to remove the app that the startup item belongs to. For example, you notice the startup of a certain app that you no longer need. You can initiate the uninstallation process directly from the startup manager, using the “Uninstall %Program Name%” button on the bottom information panel.
Alternatively, you can navigate to the “Applications” tool directly from the startup by selecting the “Open in Applications” menu item from the popup menu.
This feature is available only for the items associated with the app registered in the appropriate sections of the system.
Regular and secure startup items removal
Now you can delete a startup item in one of two ways: by regular or secure removal.
In the first case, the item will be simply removed from the list, but this does not guarantee that it will not appear again. This method is recommended by default.
If you use secure removal, Reg Organizer, in addition to excluding the item from the list, will make sure that it does not appear there again. This option will be useful, for example, when a certain app creates startup entries for performing some tasks, and this cannot be disabled in the app settings.
Support for Windows 10 and 8.1 services that run in Protected Mode has been added. These services cannot be modified, which is now indicated in the UI.
Blocking startup settings
For some types of items, such as Task Scheduler items, popup menu commands “Prevent Changing the Delay Time” (for delayed items) and “Prevent Re-Enabling” (for disabled items) have been added.
This is necessary when you do not want the apps that have created these entries to change the startup order or to run again on startup (for disabled items).
The new version is already available for download on the official website and through automatic updates.
