Windows can run one or more of your applications automatically each time it starts by placing a shortcut to the application in the Startup folder. At startup, Windows looks in various locations for programs to run; however, the Startup folder is the simplest way to add your own (see Win Startup run sequence
). To add an application to the Startup folder, do the following:
1. Launch Explorer.
2. Right click program icon.
3. Select Create Shortcut.
4. Drag shortcut into appropriate folder below:
1. Press Windows Key+R for Run command
2. Type shell:startup.
(Startup folder appears)
