DreamMapper Software Data Hog
#1
Hi Guys! I downloaded Dreammapper software to use with my Resperonics machine and it automatically puts itself in the Start menu on my PC. Turns out it is a DATA HOG and is slowing my computer down to the point I am about to uninstall it. How can I install it on my hard drive without it being in my Start menu?
I am saving my info on an Excel sheet I created so I do not mind unistalling and re-installing BUT I don't know how to keep it from creating the same problem.
I can simply click on the icon and open the program to open it when I need it.
Thanks!

If you right click on the program icon you should get an “unpin from start “ option.
A simpler approach if you have a smart phone(even a low end one) is to use the app that down loads the data via bluetooth and displays it on your phone. It also uploads the data from the phone so you can see the data on the DreamMaker site without needing to use the uploader program that seems to be giving you problems.

I assume you mean it is in the Start (or Startup on Windows 10) so that it automatically runs when you log on and not just the "Start menu" which is where we find all the links to our installed software.

Delete the icon out of the Start menu. Start or Startup in 10 is just a folder. Anything in it is usually a shortcut that points to the software.

If you can't delete it from the Startup, you can find the .LNK file at one of these two places. One for your user profile and one for "all users":

For you, go to start > run and type in
"%appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

and for all users

"C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp"

Copying and pasting one of those in Start > Run (with the surrounding quotes because of the space in Start Menu) and it should open.

ProgramData and AppData are hidden folder so you won't normally see it by drilling down from file explorer.

Why would anybody want to look at their data, anyway?
