Re: starting a program with windows

Eleni Vamvakari

I am an XP user and have never done that. I have created shortcuts
and putting them on the desktop, which has required me to go into the
actual folder where the program is located, but usually I just go to
All Programs and find it there. Then, it should appear on the Start
Menu because it was recently used. If not, try the run command and
enter the name of the program. If you want it to start with Windows,
there may be an equivalent to msconfig and the startup tab. I usually
just use Win Patrol to customise my start menu. I can't help you with
Windows 10, but perhaps, you can do something similar to what I have

Best of luck,

Hello Adrien,

Welcome to Windows 10.

Try this:
Navigate to c:\program data\microsoft\windows\start menu
See if there is a shortcut for the program you want to start.
