Each time I would space bar, I was thrown back to the beginning.

Here is how you turn off the background apps. First, press windows key + I to open the settings area. Next, go to privacy and press enter. Now, down arrow until you get to background apps and press enter. Now, start tabbing. As you tab, you will hear a different background app each time you tab. If it just says button, it is already turned off and you don’t need to do anything. However, if it says button check, you need to press the space bar to turn off that app. Just keep tabbing and pressing space bar on each one that says checked to uncheck the app. You will end up at the home button. Just close out of settings and you are done. Let me know how this works. Have a great one.

Hi all

I'm not sure if it's this list now or another one, but someone shared a tip to turn off all background apps as they are not needed. Until now, I left them alone because didn't know what would happen if messed around in there. Now I have turned them off, the laptop has suddenly sped up from the start. Thanks to whoever shared this tip, very much appreciated.
