    Can anyone tell me how to disable quick startup for any app? I tried to search for it in the settings and games but couldn't find any option.

    PS: I tried to uninstall the app nothing happened.

    Hi, that setting is called "lightning start". You can find it in the settings of the games app itself, open games app>settings>scroll down until you see that setting

    🤣 Some settings are buried pretty deep. Plus it's called "lightning start" while it says in the game "quick startup so...yeah confusing. Anyway, you're welcome 👍

    Hi,

    I am trying to disable this "Lighting Start", but unable to locate it.

    I went to the game app setting, but can't find it.

    Can you show me where exactly please?

    Thanks,
    Ken

    The only way I've found to turn off the Quick Startup is to disable the "Gaming" stuff in general. If you go to the settings app and search "App Enhancement Services" and turn it that off, the Quick Startup will no longer bother you. It will also disable the gaming overlay and optimization in general if that's something you care about.

    Guys I've found the answer! It's not on the normal settings, no.

    Go to 'Games' app! Then see the top right hit the three dots and settings.

    Scroll down and you can disable 'lightning start' on the 'other' section

    Weird these settings can't be found on the normal settings page nor through the search function. Would be helpful if that was added to a future software update! #suggestion

    Thanks for sharing this.

    Where do you locate the "Games" app? I look everywhere and can't find it.

    Swipe up on the main home screen to get your full app directory. See picture. Should be visible there.

    You are welcome! Glad you found it. Indeed it is annoying! Quite a battery drainer.
