    So i was wondering that in windows 7, gadgets and startup items load immediately after getting to desktop.
    But in 8.1, half the start up items loaded immediately, and other half (including gadgets/touchpad driver) loaded after a delay of about 10 seconds.

    Thanks to this trick, everything loads as soon as it gets to desktop now.

    Hello Mrdreamers, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You could do what's in the note box under step 3 in Option Two to add it to be able to continue.

    Note   Note
    If you do not have a Serialize key, then right click or press and hold on the Explorer key, click/tap on New and Key, type Serialize for the name, and press Enter.

    Hello,

    Could you tell me how to undo this change? I had used Option 1 (using the reg file) to set it to 0 on Windows 10.

    Thanks.

    Hello Orangutan, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You could use OPTION TWO and delete the Startupdelayinmsec DWORD to go back to default.
