    adding a program manually to startup


    Hi All, my major issue so far with Win10 is that no matter what i do, a program will not start when i login. i am using say the time and I have done everything from changing the compatibility (check the run as admin) to adding a task scheduler job to run when the computer starts. the program runs fine when i start it manually, but not when i put it into the start menu (using shell:startup) . what am i doing wrong?

    Have you gone to Task Manager and clicked on the startup tab? make sure it is enabled?

    Have you tried to reinstall it? I have tried it and it created a startup by itself and also started just fine.

    If you can start it manually, find the program in all apps, right click it, select more and open file location, on the .EXE file, right click it and select send to > Desktop as shortcut. On your Desktop click it and see if it starts the program. If it does, open shell:common startup (C:/Program data/microsoft/windows/start menu/programs/startup) and drag/drop the desktop icon into there. That should work. If not, you may have to do what TairikuOkami suggested.

    BTW< it should be by default, but make sure it is enabled in task Manager > Startup Tab.

    I have one program like that, NetTrafic, It's in Startup and enabled, it's also in startup folder, etc. etc. in it's options it's marked to start with windows, has administrator privileges but still will not start automatically, It's latest version and it works with W10 without problems.
