windows 7If you have more than one operating system on your PC, then you know pretty well that the BootManager is that handy application which displays what OS to choose for a handful of seconds (usually 30 secs).  Right after that, it will boot the default operating system. Here is a cool trick to increase or decrease the time the Bootmanager uses to show you its options.

  1. Click Start.
  2. In the Search Field, type CMD
  3. Now, in order to use such a tool with Admin privileges, right click the CMD icon, and choose “Run As Administrator”.
  4. Now, on the black CMD window type  bcdedit /timeout <seconds_you_want_to_set> ex: bcdedit /timeout 25
  5. Exit the CMD.
  6. Done!

    There are at least 250 services and features that run on win 7 by default that can be safely turned off for a home computer. My boot time is down to 28 seconds and my system is faster and more solid since turning them off.
