How To Disable Background Apps

If you have Windows 10, this is an important tip to know.

Background Apps, by default, are allowed to run even if they’re not being used. This means they’re affecting battery life, collecting information, and can download/install updates.

While this may not seem a problem to some, other users may want to disable it. Here’s what you do:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Click on Privacy
  3. Find Background Apps
  4. Turn off the “Let apps run in the background” option.

You also have the option of turning on/off individual applications, instead of turning all of them off as a whole.
