**Getting MATLAB to Start Up Faster**

Here are some things that you can do to make MATLAB start up faster.

- Make sure toolbox path caching is enabled.
- Make sure that the system on which MATLAB is running has enough RAM.
- Choose only the windows you need in the MATLAB desktop.
- Close the Help browser before exiting MATLAB. When you start your next session, MATLAB will not open the Help browser, and thus will start faster.
- If disconnected from the network, check the
`LM_LICENSE_FILE`

variable. See http://www.mathworks.com/support/solutions/data/25731.html for a more detailed explanation.

**For more information:** See Reduced Startup Time with Toolbox Path Caching in the MATLAB Desktop Tools and Development Environment documentation.
