Boot up without the floppy drive to save time

Windows Me

Would you like to shorten your startup time, even if by a little bit? Tell Windows Me not to search for your floppy drive when it starts up. You'll still be able to use the drive, but Windows Me will search for it only when you click the floppy drive icon in My Computer or Windows Explorer.

Here's how to do it:

  1. Right-click My Computer, click the Properties button, and then click the Performance tab.
  2. Click the File System button and then click the Floppy Disk tab.
  3. Clear the option to Search for new floppy disk drives each time your computer starts.
