How to Disable Background Apps in Windows 11?

If you want to turn off background apps on Windows 10, it’s easy enough. But turning off background apps might actually save your battery life.

There’s a lot of confusion about what happens when you disable background apps. Some people think that disabling background apps will make your battery drain faster. Others think that disabling background apps won’t do anything at all. And some people just don’t understand why anyone would ever want to disable background apps.

But here’s the thing: disabling background apps does nothing to stop apps from running in the background. They still run in the background. You just tell Windows that you no longer care about those apps.

And while disabling background apps doesn’t hurt your battery life, it does help keep your battery alive longer. If you’re worried about your battery life, disabling background apps could be one way to go.

The Windows registry stores information about how programs work together and what each program does. If you delete or corrupt the registry, some programs won’t run properly. You might see error messages or receive unexpected behavior. To fix problems caused by corrupted or missing registry entries, download the latest version of the Microsoft Fixit tool. This free utility scans your computer for errors and repairs damaged registry keys.

You can use Fixit to repair the following types of issues:

• Missing or incorrect values in the registry

• Incorrectly linked files

• Unnecessary startup items

• Malformed shortcuts

Fixit works automatically without requiring manual intervention. After running Fixit, you’ll find a log file where you can view detailed information about the fixes performed.
