I only really use my laptop for gaming and some light coding. I don't really use windows explorer very often, and it is just another useless task for me most of the time. I usually just end it in task manager, but that's getting kinda old. Is there a way to keep explorer from launching in the background upon startup? I want JUST steam big picture to start. I would get SteamOS but it's linux based and I can't play most of my games on that, so I just want steam to startup at startup, while only essential windows programs run. Any suggestions? all help is appreciated!
