prevent autostart of UMS

Post by Montenovo » Sun Dec 23, 2018 8:58 pm


I am working with UMS V. 7.1.0 and have the following question:

The app starts every time the PC is booted. It is not possible to prevent this (neither by settings in Windows 10 itself nor by unchecking the box "Start automatically with Windows" on the tab "General settings").

What other options are there?

Best regards

IIRC, to change the "Start automatically with Windows" option, you need to run UMS as an Administrator in Windows, since, I think, UMS puts/deletes a shortcut in a Windows protected folder.
