Windows 10: Real Temp 3.70 auto run at startup.
Real Temp 3.70 auto run at startup.
Just wanting some help as I upgraded to windows 10 today.
I've copied a shortcut for Realtemp 3.7 and tried placing in both startup folders aswell as only putting it in one of them.
I want Realtemp to load as soon as I get to the desktop so I can monitor CPU temps.
Can someone please assist me with how to do this as I'm still very early on in learning my way around 10.

Hello boeingnaviation, and welcome to Ten Forums.
Since Real Temp requires to be elevated before running, you'll need to create an elevated shortcut using the method in the tutorial below, then place the elevated shortcut in your Startup folder.
Elevated Shortcut without UAC - Create in Windows 10
Thanks very much for the link. I will go through this and set up Realtemp this way.
Just one thing though, how will I know if something needs to be setup this way if it needs an elevated start.
You're most welcome. I hope it'll help.
If the program gives you a UAC prompt when you run it, you'll need to use this method to run it at startup.
Ok thanks very much so basically most of my programs lol but only need 2 of them to run at startup.
Just curious as to why it was setup this way in 10 as previously you just had to place the shortcut in the startup folder.
Also is there a way to automatically create the shortcut like a batch file.
By default, Windows will not allow anything elevated at startup for security reasons. This is a workaround.
I haven't played with trying to do this with a .bat file, but you should be able to do so to create the elevated task and shortcut.
Ok so I've had a play but still can't get Realtemp to start automatically when I run windows.
Here's some screenshots of of what I have setup:
Here it is in the Task Scheduler showing "Realtemp" in there.

Here you can see I've used the same name "Realtemp", and set to run with the highest privilages and run on Windows 10

And here is what I have entered under the "Actions Tab".

Note: I've selected Action = Start a Program, Program Script is called "Realtemp", then under Add Arguments (Optional I have put this) /c start "Realtemp" "C:\Users\Chris\Desktop\PC Utilities\RealTemp_370
I then went through the process of creating a shortcut. Do I need to place this in both Startup Folders, the one under Users and the One under windows.
I wan't it to automatically open and run as soon as Windows Logs on.
Am I missing something.
Here's a tricky one for you (well I think it is anyway!) ;)

Since there is no START folder, how do you set up an exe file to run whenever windows 10 starts?
