Startup Me Up!

Tonight's tip is one I learned long ago, and it's a very simple one. It is however one that can hopefully help you organize your work day.

Each time you startup a Windows PC you can have it open certain files or certain programs. Just take these two steps:

1. Click on the Windows key in the lower left and then type in Run, to get the Run window. Then enter the command, "Shell:startup".

2. Windows will open the folder (probably, "C:\Users\[YourUserName}\Start Menu\Programs\Startup") that contains files and programs to be run after the system is restarted.

Whether it's a link to a web site or an executable file, Windows will open it the next time you login.
