    Want Application to Start when Windows starts

    I have an application which I want to open when Windows 10 starts.

    I recall in earlier versions of Windows you could do this by putting a shortcut to the application in a special "Start Up" folder. I do not see this option in Windows 10.

    Put your shortcut in this folder:

    C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Wind ows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    Where {username} is your own login ID.

    This is where Microsoft moved the startup folder (for reasons known only to Microsoft).
