HP PCs - Use Microsoft System Configuration

The Microsoft System Configuration (msconfig) tool is a Microsoft software application used to change configuration settings, such as which software opens with Windows. It contains several useful tabs: General, Boot, Services, Startup, and Tools. You can use Microsoft System Configuration to resolve problems with your computer.


For business computers, changes made using Microsoft System Configuration might revert after reboot, or items might be unavailable or grayed out. These changes could be related to the management of the PC, where policies might be set. Contact your company IT department or your local IT service for more information.
