Disable startup applications

For example, do you really need Samba for sharing files over the network, or the Bluetooth service to connect to Bluetooth devices on a computer that doesn’t have a Bluetooth adapter?


  • Go to Show applications -> Startup Applications

  • Remove check marks next to the services you wish to disable at startup.


In MATE, you can configure your startup applications in the main control centre, using the “Startup Applications” applet.
