Windows 10: Auto Startup Steam after x amount of time

    Auto Startup Steam after x amount of time


    Hey people! Hope y'all are well!

    Is there at all any possible way I can force Steam to auto launch at system startup after at least 1 minute after log on? For some reason at the moment Steam will try to connect before my Internet connection has made a connection and it just sits idle as if it was never opened but the processes are running. :/ I always have to force close via Task Manager and then launch Steam again.

    In addition, you could create an elevated task, create a shortcut of the task, and place this shortcut in your Startup folder.

    Thank you, Tairiku and Brink for your responses!

    I've created a task and set for highest privileges and set up how I wanted it. It is to run at logon 1 minute after the successful connection of "Network 2".. I tried to do a test run and I get this:

    I checked Services to see if the Task Scheduler had been disabled but it's on "Automatic" and is running. :/

    Task Scheduler service depends on other services, like on "System Events Broker".

    You can click on Steam's shortcut when you feel like playing, there is no need to run it 24/7.

    I have Steam open straight after logon because I use the Wallpaper Engine software for my desktop animated background.Click image for larger version.
