    Startup menu conditional items(?) (XP SP2)

    I have certain files and programs that I need to open only on Monday morning, and another that I need only on Friday. Is there a way to tweak a shortcut in the Startup folder so that it will open only on Mondays and Fridays?

    One of the files is an Excel file, and I know how to write a macro that can check the day and open the file only on Monday, but I also have a couple of proprietary programs (to which I don't have access to the code) that I'd like to do the same thing with.

    Instead of using startup why don't you schedule a task that runs at a certain time on Monday and another on Friday?
