1. Disable Steam from startup Windows 10 from Parameters
2. Disable Steam from Start Windows 10 from Task Manager

Steam has become one of the best current platforms to access thousands of games, both free and paid games, offering us multiple management and control options , all these games are available online and new updates will be launched at all times to that more and more users feel identified with the platform..

 

But like many programs that we install in Windows 10, when it is installed it is configured in such a way that it opens when Windows 10 starts . This assumes not only an unnecessary waste of resources , but for many users it is annoying that Steam opens when logging in (if it is not time to play), for this reason TechnoWikis will explain two methods to prevent Steam from opening at startup Windows 10.
