Startup Delayer 3.0 new interface

By Cliff Cawley on 17th September 2010

Startup Delayer 3.0 is under construction however I'm going to show you a preview of the new Main window.

You should notice it looks quite different from version 2.5. One of the most noticeable missing interface features is the time bar. It's missing because its no longer needed, you just order your items how you like, and Startup Delayer will handle the rest for you.

Above is a screenshot of the new main window. The main interface features several pages of information allowing you to configure your Startup Applications, as well as perform functions on Running Tasks and System Services.

One of the largest interface changes relates to the removal of the time chart and the concept of specifying arbitrary time values. In Startup Delayer 2.0 you were required to choose arbitrary time values and manually tweak until your startup was smooth. In Startup Delayer 3.0 this entire process is now automatic.

You no longer choose time values, you just tell Startup Delayer what order you'd like your applications to start in and it will handle the rest for you, examining your computer's current usage and only launching when it is considered idle.

Another major change is the ability to edit any available user accounts from the current user, instead of logging out of windows and into the user you wanted to edit. This makes it much easier to see the overall Startup situation without restarting.

Startup Delayer 3.0 also features the ability to save and use profiles. Profiles allow you to setup configurations of startup applications and then to switch between them. Many users have requested this feature and it will be available in Startup Delayer 3.0.

I'll provide more information about the other features soon.
