To prevent programs from loading automatically with Windows 10 startup, perform the following steps:-
Step 1. Start the Task Manager by right-clicking on an empty place on the taskbar and then selecting the Task Manager option.
Step 2. If the Task Manager opens with fewer details, click the More Details for its full version.
Step 3. Navigate to the Startup tab. You will see a list of Startup app that starts. Right-click on the program you want to stop from automatically launching, and then click the Disable option. If you need to stop more than one startup program, you need to do it one by one.
