Have you ever wondered where to find the places that start up a program when Windows starts?
Here are three places you may not be aware of:
This is the Startup folder that was in the Start menu on older versions of Windows. It's still there on Windows 8.x.
32 and 64 Bit Windows
64 Bit Windows only (32 bit apps are in here)
Windows Task Scheduler. (Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Task Scheduler)
Windows 8.x/7: Expand the left panel - Task Scheduler (Local)/Task Scheduler Library/Microsoft/Windows/TheAppOfInterest
I hope this helps next time you are trying to locate where a program is being started when you start Windows.
