How to Prevent Apps From Running in the Background in Windows 10

On Windows 10, apps runs in the background to take advantage of the OS features, including the ability to download data, show toast notifications, and fetch information to display up-to-date updates in their Live tiles in the Start menu.

However, having many apps running in the background can eat up valuable resources and waste power. By default, Windows 10’s Modern apps can run in the background on your PC.

To prevent apps from running in the background use the following steps:

1. Open Settings > Privacy > Background apps.

2. On the "Background apps" page use one of the two options:
  • Turn off the Let apps run in the background toggle switch to disable all apps acquired from the Store.

  • Turn off the toggle switches for the specific apps you don't want to run in the background.
