    Startup Items Question; Adding to Them ? And Having A Folder Appear


    Hello,

    Chipping away with getting W10 going with all of your help.
    Couldn't do it otherwise.
    So, again, much thanks-very appreciated.

    a. How do I add an item to the Startup list, such that it automatically will start
    when the PC starts ?

    I would like my eMail (Mozilla Thunderbird) to appear at turn-on.

    I found the list in the Task manager for starting items, but do not see any way of adding to it.
    Don't see any Folder labeled Startup
    How do I add additional items ?

    b. And, if I copy a Folder (via a USB Memory Stick transfer) with a lot of WORD documents in it from old PC to the new one, how can I have this Folder appear, Always, on the new PC's Desktop, like it was under W7 on the old PC ?

    Much thanks,
    Bob

    Place a link to Mozilla Thunderbird executable in

    C:\Users\youraccount\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

    Then when you boot it will launch Thunderbird.

    Hi,

    Thanks for help.

    Can't seem to find any "AppData" under C:\Users\and my account\
    Is it a hidden file, or,...?

    Also, a more general question: if I want to type in: C:\------- where is the best place, or way, to do it ?

    Thanks again,
    Bob

    There are 100 different ways. I find the easiest to press and R to open the Run box and then paste in the path.

    So for this example copy and paste the contents of the box below - the system will automatically substitute %appdata% for C:\Users\youraccount\AppData\Roaming so copy it exactly as it is then click OK
    Code:
    %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    If you go to the same places often it will remember them so you can and R and press the down arrow to see the last few places and not have to type them at all.
