Windows 10 notifies the user when an app is added to the boot list.

The Windows 10 system allows applications to start with power on. Although users have full control over these boot apps, many major programs (such as Microsoft Teams, Spotify, OneDrive, Cortana, etc.) are automatically set to boot and run in the background.

When the user installs the application, these are automatically added to the boot item without the user’s permission, which can affect the performance and boot time of the PC. Now Microsoft has finally introduced a new feature that alerts users when an application tries to add to the boot list.

Although this feature is not listed in the update log for the latest preview version of Windows 10 21H1, user viewing notifications provides a deeper understanding of background activity. Windows has always provided you with a way to disable the launcher, but until now, it has not been able to notify users when an application adds itself to the launch list. You can click the notification to open Start Settings, where you can see and delete all programs that you want to stop loading automatically.
