How to stop TeamViewer from starting Automatically

TeamViewer is the global platform for the digital networking of people and machines: Whether remote access, remote maintenance, IT management, or the digitization of entire workforces, workflows, and industries – we have the right solution. For remote access, remote control, or remote maintenance, kindly download without registration from this link. Here, this is a bit different from stopping programs in macOS from running automatically as shown in this article “How to stop an application from starting up automatically on macOS“, and how to stop Cisco Webex Meetings from starting up automatically.

Here, this is a bit different from stopping programs in macOS from running automatically as shown in this link.

Here I am running TeamViewer 14.1.3399 as of the time of this writing. Here are the steps to disable TeamViewer from running automatically upon System startup or restart.

- Launch TeamViewer
- Under Unattended Access
- Uncheck 'Start TeamViewer with System'

Next, a pop-up window appears, where you are asked to disable start with the system. After this step is performed, TeamViewer will restart itself.

That is all you need to configure 🙂

I hope you found this blog post helpful. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comment session.

Doesn’t work (May 2020). There it says I need administrator, running TV with Admin from Windows menu doesn’t help either. Uninstalled this buggy software (“if a feature can’t be disabled, it’s to be considered a bug”).

The most important question is, “Why is Team Viewer running in the first place?” Is there a downside to turning it off?

Thank you! Also, thank you for saving me the time of reading thousands of useless words and just providing the solution in simple and easy to follow steps. I prefer writing back a comment than reading filler words.

umm that setting was never enabled and teamviewer always starts on system startup, and is not enabled in task manager so there has to be something else

This can be fixed by checking the “Start TeamViewer with Windows” checkbox underneath Unattended Access, then unchecking it. When it is unchecked, you will get the dialog prompt asking “Do you really want to disable Start Teamviewer with Windows”. These steps must force it to update a property and then it will not start again when you reboot.

I disabled that bloody option for thousands times…
Useless 🙁
My Teamviewer is starting and the check is back.
Every time I think to resume this quest, thinking that a new version maybe changed something in this regard, I’m ending uninstalling it.
I install it every time I need it (once or twice weekly) since I don’t remember how many years…
…but I’m happy that at least for others, this setting is working…
