    Open local file at startup


    Is there any way I can have a local (ODS) file open when I turn on my laptop?
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, create a shortcut of the file and place that shortcut in the 'Startup' folder located at:

    C:\Users\<your name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
