Windows 10 startup folder

Launch programs automatically using the Windows 10 Startup folder

Do you use you computer for only a couple of main purposes and live in just a couple of select programs that need to be open at all times? You can launch these programs automatically after starting your windows computer to save you time by using the Windows 10 startup folder. If you always open a particular program or programs after starting your computer then you can make that program or programs open automatically when you start your computer. Not only programs but you can also make a file such as word document, PDF document , audio song, video song, etc or any other file that you want or even a folder containing files to open automatically when you start your computer.

Follow the below procedure to automatically launch programs, files and folders that you want when windows starts:-

► Using the Windows search bar type “run”

► This will open a Run box. Here we will simply type shell:startup

► In the Windows Startup folder that opens, copy and paste the shortcut of the program or programs that you want to launch when computer starts. You can also copy and paste those files and folders that you want to launch on computer startup. You can put as many programs, files and folders that you want. After that close the Startup folder.

► When you start your computer next time, the programs, files and folders which you put in the Startup folder would open automatically and would continue to open automatically each time after you start the computer.

► If you want to stop a program, file or folder from launching automatically on computer startup then simply delete that program, file or folder from the Startup folder.
