Startup delayer – how to change windows startup order

Chameleon Startup Manager is a startup manager (msconfig replacement) that enables the full customization of startup programs.

Setting a startup delay can optimize Windows startup, especially if your computer has slow startup.

There are several ways to run startup programs with a startup delay (ie change windows startup order):
Use the wizard immediately to set a startup delay for multiple startup programs.
Dragging a program shortcut to the Delay Bar achieves visual customization. The startup order can also be changed in the same place by dragging across any shortcuts.
It is also possible to open the program settings and change the startup delay in the same location. In addition, the programs can be organized with specific start days, program startup order and priority, which also helps to optimize startup.
