    Boot to the Desktop - Fail
    Boot to Start Screen - OK

    Thanks for your post which is also the solution to this thread that I started.

    The moment I uncheck the option to go to my desktop all startup programs start as expected with the start screen enabled!
    It is for sure a bug!!!!!
    The combination of start screen & booting on the desktop creates this problem!

    I'm glad to hear that you finally got this sorted.

    I was able to reproduce the same thing now that I know the cause, and sent feedback to Microsoft about this to hopefully help get it sorted in a future Windows 10 build.

    I wanted Real Temp to auto start but couldn't solve this any other way than creating a batch file and putting a shortcut to this bat in the startup folder. It always works, and is particularly helpful if you need to autostart a program with administrator rights. Miss the good old days when you could just put a shortcut in the startup folder and it ALWAYS worked.
