    Actually, Windows 7 is the same way for elevated programs at startup.

    Well all I did for Windows 7 was create a shortcut of the main program and drop into the startup folder.

    Didnt have to make this elevated command prompt. Don't know what's different. I've simply upgraded windows 10 from 7 using the upgrade option

    The program may not have needed to run elevated at the time and would have been allowed to run at startup.

    Oh ok and since updating to windows 10 it does need to be elevated.

    No problems I'm going go through the tutorial and ammend it so it does start automatically upon windows startup.

    Thanks Brink you've been great.

    Hi Brink,

    Have had the chance to test this out now with no Luck.

    I think I'm getting mixed up On Step. 7 & 8?

    On Step Number 7 I put the directory for "cmd.exe" in Windows under Program/Script.

    In Arguments field I put "/c start "Realtemp" "C:\Users\Chris\Desktop\PC Utilities\RealTemp_370\RealTemp.exe".

    I then went through the process of creating the shortcut, and placed in in both the User startup folder & the windows Startup folder.

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

    I found a simpler way here to do it through the registry:

    Windows 10 Startup programs not launching - Microsoft Community

    Ideally I don't want to fiddle with the registry but as soon as I followed these steps boom I started right up upon restart.

    Any advise to get it working the other way.

    The method I mention will only work with an administrator account at startup.

    Hi Brink,

    I am the only user on my PC. My account under Windows 7 was an Adin account so I just presumed with the upgrade it would have kept me as an admin.

    One thing to note. When I started the PC cmd.exe flicked on the screen then off but Realtemp didn't open.

    It sounds like it's trying to run, but something failed.

    Go ahead and post screenshots showing all of your settings in Task Scheduler and the elevated shortcut's target in its properties page to see if anything stands out.
