How to make any program start automatically at Windows boot [Tip]

Although some software packages include options to add them to the Windows startup, a lot don’t have any startup option to select from. So how can you add those programs to the Windows startup? Well, with AutoEx you can add any software to the startup in Windows.

To get started, add AutoEx to Windows from this Softpedia page [1] by pressing the Download From Softpedia button. Then you can run the software from the folder you saved it to. Launch the software to open the window in the shot below.

From the AutoEx window you can also select whether to start the software once or each time you start Windows. Select either the Every time or Once radio buttons on the window. You can also select a startup type by clicking the Current User or All Users radio buttons.

Now when you restart Windows, it will start with the software you selected with AutoEx. If you run MSCONFIG, you’ll find the software listed on the Startup tab. So now you can add any software to the Windows startup!
