Make a Program Starts Automatically When Your Computer Boots

Do you want to set a software installed on your computer to start automatically when your PC boots up? If one software installed is used by you very often, then it makes sense to set it start automatically every time when PC starts. I have a Samsung netbook which is primarily used for browsing. So it makes sense to enable auto start for Google Chrome and Firefox, my favorite browsers. To convert a normal software to start automatically on a computer, we must add it to Windows StartUp. All the programs and tools listed in StartUp run automatically when the computer boots. This tutorial explains how to enable auto-start on selected applications installed on your laptop. Second part of this guide explains how to delete a program from StartUp if you no longer want that application start with booting.

Make A Software Runs Automatically

I think it is better explain this concept with a practical example. Here I am going to set Google Chrome to run automatically whenever Windows Starts. You can follow the same procedure to convert any application in to auto-run mode.
  1. Open StartUp Folder:
    1. Click on Windows Start and Select All programs

    2. Right click on StartUp and Click open

       folder
  2. Create Shortcut of Google Chrome
    1. Right Click on Google Chrome

    2. Click on Create Shortcut

  3. Drag the shortcut in to StartUp folder

Now the Google Chrome is added to Windows StartUp. It means, whenever your computer boots, Google Chrome too will start automatically. By following the same steps you can add any programs on your computer to Windows StartUp and convert them auto starting applications. Now it is the time to learn about Windows run time errors.

Remove unwanted Startup Programs

Some times you may need to remove certain applications from this list. It is because having so many applications in that folder may reduce your system bootup speed and efficiency. We can remove any programs from appearing in system bootup menu by removing them from msconfig window.
  1. Click on Windows start

  2. On search type msconfig and press enter

  3. Click on startup tab

  4. Uncheck unwanted programs

The unchecked programs will not appear in that folder again. After unchecking the applications while saving it you may need to restart your computer.

Adding more programs and tools in to the start Up folder may cause more time to boot your computer. Though it affect the booting time, you can access the tool you want right after Windows on because those tools have started automatically.
