What is Сhameleon Startup Manager?

Chameleon Startup Manager can control programs that run at Windows startup, which makes Windows start faster and operate with increased stability.
Programs can be run according to various functions including startup order change, startup delay, priority, consecutive program launch, day selection and much more.
Chameleon Startup Manager also offers program launch options with fixed or automatic delayed startup, allowing the computer to be started as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Configurations can be created and selected at Windows startup or applied 'on-the-fly' without restarting Windows.
Chameleon Startup Manager provides real-time monitoring of programs added to the startup list.

Why use Windows Startup Manager?

startup delay can be configured to visually customize the order of startup programs. The programs can be organized with specific start days, program startup order, priority and other parameters.
Using one-click disabling, prevent irritating startup programs from constantly adding themselves to the startup list.
During Windows startup, it is possible to select the programs to be launched by selecting one of the startup configurations saved earlier (eg, for the Internet, for work, etc).
When a new program is added to the list, Chameleon Startup Monitor can provide immediate notification.

These and many other features (listed in the table below) can optimize a slow startup computer.
