  • Click the little floppy icon at the top to before! any changes are made to save a copy of the original startup in case something is has been broken in the process Keeping Chrome permanently unchecked in Startup?-disk.png.
  • Find the entry(ies) of Chrome you want to get rid of, uncheck them and simply exit the program and reboot the PC.
Disabling the wrong entry may result in Windows not booting properly or not at all!
Make sure you know what you're disabling.
