LaunchLater is a freeware to delay the launch of startup programs that will improve Windows startup process. Normally, when Windows starts, all startup programs launch simultaneously which results in slow startup. Although there are many startup managers available, but those standalone programs can only deactivate or remove programs from startup list. Using this software, you can keep all startup programs unchanged, and can set delay time for their launch.
For every single startup program, you can set separate delay time in minutes and seconds. After this, you can save new settings. Whenever you will start Windows, startup programs will launch in the order of their launch time.
Above screenshot shows the interface of this software where you can set the delay time to launch startup programs.
