Adding Programs to startup
« on: October 31, 2006, 04:10:39 AM »
I am not experienced in Windows. so I have a question.

In Mac OS X  you can add any program to the list of programs that start when the computer boots very easily in the system prefrences. How do you make a program start when windows starts?

Right click the program, create a link, move the link to your Startup folder (generally: C:\Documents and Settings\ ... user ... \Start Menu\Startup.
That was easy for us Mac  ;D

Thanks Tech.

In OS X  We Go to System Preferences and click accounts and choose the Login Items Tab and add the program to the list
