How to Make an Application Start Automatically in Windows 10

by | Dec 4, 2018 | InfoStyle Technical Articles | 0 comments

Windows actually makes it pretty easy to auto-load both programs and documents. But keep in mind ther more stuff you load during startup the longer it takes your machine to start up. Nonetheless here´s how to make programs or documents start automatically when Windows does.

Use FileManager to open the Startup folder at this location:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp

A convenient way to get there is to hit the Windows key and type start and then right-click on Start Menu and chose Open File Location. In the new window click into Start Menu then Programs, then click into the Startup folder. The Startup folder may or may not be empty but this is where you must place a shortcut to anything you want Windows to load automatically at startup.

To make a shortcut to any program go to Start menu again and find your program but instead of left clicking it as usual – this time you right click over it and select More and Open File Location. Another window opens, now right click on the program´s icon and choose Send to and then Desktop (create shortcut). A new shortcut icon appears on your desktop.
Finally drag the new shortcut from the desktop to the Startup folder opened previously:

(C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp).

Click Continue when prompted to confirm move.

Now reboot Windows and see if your prorgam does not startup automatically at boot.
