    Start program or web page at login

    So some one keeps frogetting to clock in when he gets back to his desk from lunch.(me)

    Start up at boot isn't going to work, because I just lock my computer and dont shut down.

    I need a way to open a webpage at login not start up.

    Any ideas?

    This was written for Win 7 and earlier but also applies to 8/8.1 and 10.

    Scheduled task triggers

    Select At log on

    This trigger causes the task to run when a user logs on to the computer, and the trigger's settings allow you to specify that the task should be triggered when any user logs on the computer or when a specific user logs on.

    Set it to start your preferred web browser and pass it the web page you want to open. Should work.

    But ... if you just lock your computer then whatever was running when you locked it will still be running, including your web browser open to whatever page it was on when you locked. Is triggering your browser again with the same or different page what you really want?
