How to Disable the Windows 10 Startup Delay

To disable the Windows 10 startup delay, you just need to make a few edits in the Windows Registry.

Open the Registry Editor by hitting Start and typing “regedit.” Press Enter to open the Registry Editor and then permit it to make changes to your PC.

Open Registry Editor App

In the Registry Editor, use the left sidebar to navigate to the following key (or copy and paste it into the Registry Editor address bar):


Click the "Serialize" key.

If the Serialize key doesn’t already exist, you’ll need to create it. First, go to the following location:


Right-click on the parent key ( Explorer ) and choose New > Key. Name it “Serialize.”

Right-click "Explorer" and select New > Key.

Now, right-click the Serialize key and choose New > DWORD (32-bit) Value. Name the new value StartupDelayInMSec .

Name the key "StartupDelayInMSec".

Next, you’re going to modify that value. Double-click the new StartupDelayInMSecvalue and make sure the value is set to 0 in the “Value data” box.

Set the Value Data to "0".

Click “OK” and then exit Registry Editor. For the changes to take effect, you’ll need to restart your computer. You and any other users should no longer experience the delay forced upon you by Windows.

If you ever want to re-enable this delay because your startup programs are demanding too many resources upon signing in, head back into the Registry Editor and delete the StartupDelayInMSec value by right-clicking it and then clicking “Delete.”

Right-click the value and select "Delete" to undo your change.
