HiBit Startup Manager Key Features:

HiBit Startup Manager displays a comprehensive list of all startup items, including those that are typically hidden from the Task Manager. This gives you a complete overview of what's launching with your computer.

Delay the Launch of Startup Items:

Sort and Filter Startup Items:

Search for Startup Items:

HiBit Startup Manager includes a search feature that allows you to quickly find startup items by name, publisher, or location. This is particularly handy when you need to locate specific startup items without knowing their full names or paths.

Create Startup Groups:

Users can create startup groups to organize and categorize startup items efficiently. This feature is beneficial for grouping related items together or for creating different startup profiles for various users or tasks.

Export and Import Startup Item Lists:

The software allows you to export and import startup item lists. This is useful for creating backups of your startup configurations and for sharing these lists with other users.

HiBit Startup Manager includes backup and restore functionality for your startup item lists. This ensures that you can easily undo changes or revert to a previous configuration if something goes wrong after making adjustments to your startup items.

Create Restore Points:

Before making changes to your startup items, the software lets you create a system restore point. This serves as a safety net, allowing you to restore your system to a previous state if any issues arise following changes to your startup configuration.
