    Get a Program to load immediately on Startup, + get it to auto-open

    When I start up the computer, various programs load ready to be opened. (These are listed in the startup folder). Always I want to look first at any new emails. I would like my mail program (Mail) to load as fast as possible and before others are loaded so that I can immediately open it while other programs are being loaded. I would also like to get Mail to open automatically ready to use.

    How can I get Mail to load quickly? and

    How can I get it to open automatically and immediately?

    Hi, you can certainly drag and create a shortcut to Mail and put it in the Startup folder. Mail then opens when you log in.
    (Windows key + R, shell:startup )

    However, prioritising startups is a different matter. Startups are specified in various places in the registry as well. Various programs are available to specify startup delays such as Winpatrol- a quick search for
    prioritise windows startups
    will give you something to read.

    Aside: I have a freeware program called Pop peeper set to run on startup- and I use that throughout the day. It repeats the mail scan automatically at intervals. On startup it scans all my email accounts (quite quickly) and indicates if there is new mail in its taskbar icon. I can read mail and reply to it (my preference is via Thunderbird). It- and Thunderbird- are linked to a free anti-SPAM program.

    So I process new mail with Pop peeper, then use Thunderbird as a mail repository to collect mail, filed using mail filters.
