Hi,

To autostart a program that does not have that option in its setup just copy the icon to your
startup folder.

For ALL Users copy to :

"C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

Right Click Start Button - Explorer All Users and navigate to that folder.

------------------------------------

For specific Users copy to :

"C:\Users\The User Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

Use Start - Computer   OR  Windows Explorers to navigate to that.

Autoruns - Free - See what programs are configured to startup automatically when your system
boots and you login. Autoruns also shows you the full list of Registry and file locations where
applications can configure auto-start settings.
