Unless youâ€™re running a dual-boot machine, you can save some start up time by turning off Vista boot options you donâ€™t need and turning on options you do need. This also is not complicated.Click on Computer, then Properties, and then â€œAdvanced system settingsâ€ to open the System Properties dialog. Under â€œStartup and Recovery,â€ click the Settings button.Un-check â€œTime to display list of operating systems.â€ (Unless, again, you have a dual-boot configuration.) While youâ€™re here, itâ€™s a good idea to set â€œTime to display recovery options when neededâ€ to 15 seconds or more. Then click OK twice to close everything.
