    Start Modes for Apps

    If I see something on my daughter's pc that is set to start "LM / Run, and I want to make it current user state, and I change it, it appears that then it is only available for the user that was ijn force for the change.

    How can I do it so that all users then have it available, so that then I can go through and turn it off just for some users?

    If you want it for ALL users, place it in the Allusers startup folder. If you want for ONLY some of the users, then it must be in ONLY their startup folder.

    Dave:

    But if it's in *my* "Current User Run" right now, do I have to go round and check each one? And, if it's in the LM Run now, and I put it in the Current User Run, that seems to affect only mine... do I have to go round and re-nsert it to each?

    Leave it in Local Machine. That is not user dependent.

    I need clarity classes... if it's in Local Machine now, but I want to be able to block some users, then what?

    See Dave's post above. Put it in each user's startup folder that you want to run it.

    Dave "Piece of cake" for the items in the startup folders...

    What of the Current User Run" items?

    Do NOT use, use the startup folders instead.

    Dave:

    Why not the "Current User Run"? I see that resulting a lot in setups as default.

    Re: Start Modes for Apps

    Dave:

    Piece of cake:

    I use Outertech.com's StartEd to view startup files and I can shift the progs there -- from HKLM Run, say to HKCU Run, or to Startup folder...

    That's easy until the question I asked: If I move a prog fromHKLM Run to HKCU Run, is it ending up in *all users'* Run, or just mine?

    Dave:

    Ah, the old proverbial crux...

    *That* is exactly what I am trying to determine... linked then with how you get it to that person's CU place...

    Re: Start Modes for Apps

    I don't, I use the Startup folder of the different users accounts.

    Re: Start Modes for Apps

    Dave:

    Well *that* raises an two questions:

    Since all and any software out there has no apparent rhyme or reason why or when they pick one or the other, does it in the end make any difference at all? and

    If I do use Startup folders for the users, is there an expedient way to,make a program specific to only certain users... for example:

    I install a prog and it puts an icon in the startup group (All Users, or the generic Startup); now what I want to do is selectively determine who gets it. I can just move it to the different user startup folders? And that being the case, is there a centralized spot to access all user's startup folders?
