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.

 3. Select Create Shortcut.
 4. Drag shortcut into appropriate folder below:
