    Glad it worked. Most times adding things to startup is really easy. It is only these programs needing administrator rights that are a pain to do.

    With regards to quotes you always need them if there is a space in the path as a space is interpreted as the end.

    So C:\A\very\long\winded\path is fine as there are no spaces
    C:\Program Files\Some\Program.exe is not as it would be read C:\Program and then stop as there is a space.
    For that you would need quotes "C:\Program Files\Some\Program.exe"
    Never knew that. If I had, I would have saved a lot of time. Interestingly, though, is that in one of the commands that had just a word quoted, which I left quoted but replaced with my specific word, didn't screw things up?

    Not sure which one you mean - do you have the example of the command you changed?

    I left in the quotes as they are shown in items 8 and 14 in the tutorial (Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create - Windows 7 Help Forums)

    No - it is fine to leave quotes there . That should not cause a problem - they are (generally) optional unless you have a space. With one word you can usually put them in or leave them out as you wish. For example dir C:\ and dir "C:\" are both valid and produce the same results with and without the quotes..

    Gotta say that you VIP guys are so helpful. I'm on the Firefox browser a lot and always trying to tweak it a little bit more. And, of course, always getting myself into trouble as I don't know much about just how things really work. Or, I simply get bogged down when trying to tweak. So, I rely on help from the forums. And it is folks like yourself that come to the rescue. Just wanting to let you know, Ix07, that I appreciated your and you colleagues help.

    BTW, I am getting used to the M570. Even though it can't be programmed as much the 22 can and new finger placements/actions take some practice, it still is a reasonable alternative to the discontinued 22. But, for the life of me, I still can't figure out why Logitech discontinued the 22.
