Tech Tip Tuesday - Startup Apps

Do you have a favourite application that you have to go and hunt for every time your computer starts up? Or maybe there is one that starts up and you really don't want it to (that's annoying).

It's super easy to choose which apps start automatically and which ones don't. Just follow these steps.


  1. Select the Start button and select Settings>Apps>Startup (or type Startup in the search bar)
  2. Toggle the apps on or off in this window. Note that on means the app will start up automatically

More Advanced

To add an app to start up (A bit more advanced but good practice!)

  1. Select the Start  button and scroll to find the app you want to run at startup
  2. Right-click the app, select More, and then select Open file location. This opens the location where the shortcut to the app is saved. If there isn’t an option for Open file location, it means the app can’t run at startup.
  3. With the file location open, press the Windows logo key  + R, type shell:startup, then select OK. This opens the Startup folder
  4. Copy and paste the shortcut to the app from the file location to the Startup folder.
