How to disable Webex from launching automatically at the startup?

Here’s a question from Darren:

I recently have installed Webex on my Windows 10 computer. I have all my clients using various collaboration tools, and for a specific client i use Webex to join the meetings. I noticed that the application always launches automatically every time I restart my Windows laptop operating system. I only require Webex when there is a scheduled meeting from clients on the application. So my question is, would it be possible to disable the Webex application to launch automatically at the start-up?

Thanks for the question, Darren. We have various ways to disable Cisco Webex Meetings to launch automatically at the start. Here we go:
