Welcome screen displays for 20 seconds Windows 11.

I installed Windows 11 on a HP 15-bw069na laptop and when it boots it stays on the welcome screen for 20 seconds before it gets to the desktop screen.

I have disabled all the start-up apps and removed the password so it boots directly to the desktop but it still sticks on the welcome screen for 20 seconds.

I am using a Microsoft account.
