Any idea how I can prevent Amazon Music from loading on startup . I'm using Windows 10 . Most annoying I want to load it manually but can't find a preference tab .
I'm sorry your Amazon Music is loading automatically. You can turn that setting off within the app itself. Click the drop-down menu next to Your Name (near Search bar) in the upper right of the Amazon Music app. Then select Preferences, then the Advanced tab. Uncheck Launch automatically on computer startup.
Note that I had the same problem - the feature to launch during Windows startup was disabled according to the application preferences, but "Amazon Music" (and "Amazon Music Helper") were both present and enabled in the "Startup" list of Windows.
This is also happening to me on windows 8, even though the start up box is unchecked in preferences, i tried to check it, shut program, reopen and it came back unchecked. i DO NOT WANT it to start with start up. really do want a solution to this please mr amazon music.
Same here running Windows 10 build 17134.76. I ended up disabling Amazon Music in Windows startup settings: Open Task Manager (press CTRL+ALT+DELETE and choose Task Manager) and click the Start-up tab on the screen that appears. Select Amazon Music and then change its startup status to "disabled". You can still start the app on demand whenever you like.
