Configuring a program to run at Windows startup

To make an application run at every startup, create a shortcut to the application and place it in the Startup folder.

Click Start, Run and type:

%userprofile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

This opens the Startup folder of your user profile. Now, right-click the folder and choose New, Shortcut and type the path for the filename which you want to execute at startup. You can simply drag the application shortcut also. This affects only your user profile startup. 

To have the application run at startup for every user who logon to the computer, place the shortcut in this path instead:

%allusersprofile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
