How many background running processes in wondows10

I just want to know how many background running processes on task manager when tapping Processes in windows 10 just after boot up of a laptop. please bring me a screenshot and guide me how to block or utterly close them.

Thank you.

Hi jayerose

Typically Windows 10 can have up to 200 processes running in the background - too many to fit into one screenshot. SvcHost can have 70+ versions running at the same time, this is normal

Windows is not just one application, it is made up of thousands of smaller applications and processes

To minimize any processes you can control in Windows 10:

Turn off all unnecessary startup applications and processes:

Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open Task Manager
Click on the Startup Tab
See any non-essential items are listed there
If so, select and click 'Disable'
Close Task Manager

Click your Start Button, type msconfig and hit Enter
When the System Configuration dialog opens, click on the Services Tab
Check the box marked 'Hide Microsoft Services'
In the remaining list, see any non-essential items are listed there, uncheck any you find
Click Apply and OK

Turn off all unnecessary Background Apps

Open the Settings App
Go to Privacy - Background Apps
Turn off any App you do not need running in the background

Restart your PC

Power to the Developer!
