On my Windows PC, how can I have a program automatically start up when I log on the computer?

  1. Right-click on the Start button and select Explore.
  2. Double-click on the Programs folder
  3. A window will open and you will see a Startup folder
  4. Click on your Start button again, and drag any program/application icon to the Startup folder
The next time you log on your computer, the program(s) in your Startup folder will automatically launch.
