  • Locate to C:\Program Data\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
  • If there is “Startup” Folder, add Shortcuts of Software which you want to autostart —> DOES NOT WORK
  • If there is no “Startup” Folder, you can create folder and add Software which you want to autostart
  • Startup Folder is folder which contains Software which we want to startup with Windows automatically

This was used only in older Windows versions. It is not used any more.
