- First of all, we need to choose to show hidden files and folders. For that, Control Panel must be released. Start typing Control Panel in Cortana's search box. This will cause Cortana to display search results with Control Panel on top. Click on it to start it.
- Now look for the search bar inside the Control Panel file. Type file on it and then press Pay. Look for an entry called File Explorer Options or Folder Options in the search results. Now click on Show hidden files and folders as shown in the screenshot.
- A new window called File Explorer Options or Folder Options opens. Select the radio button corresponding to Show hidden files, folders and drives after expanding Hidden files and folders under Advanced settings. Paste Apply and later well once you are done.
- Now let's make the necessary changes to the file Start file. For that, click on the File Browser icon.
- Problem? Well that's because you haven't changed the username part in the path name. Replace the username part with your username.
- After entering the correct username, press Pay. It shouldn't cause any problems now.
- If all of this is confusing you a little, you can always go the easy way. Just open the Run command window using Cortana's search box and once it's open, type shell: start and hit Pay. This will open the file Start file.
- Now right click on an empty space inside the file Start folder and then click on New and then in Shortcut.
- The previous step will open a new window called Create a shortcut. You need to provide the location of the item you want to start automatically on startup. You can do this by clicking on Surf and searching for the file or by providing the location of a particular file directly.
- If you want to provide the location directly without navigating, right-click the file and click properties. In the properties window that opens, look for a field called Purpose. Copy the contents of this field and paste it into the archived text Write the position of the object in Create a window shortcut, as shown in the screenshot above. Click on Next when done.
- Now let's check if the item was successfully added to our file Start. For this, right-click on an empty space on the taskbar. In the context menu that appears, find and click on the option named Task Manager.
- The window for the Task Manager opens. Click the tab called Start. If you take a look at all the entries, you will notice that the file you added with the help of the previous steps has found a place in Start. That's all.
- Now, if you want to remove a particular application or file from the Start file, you just need to open the file Start folder as before and right click on an entry to delete it.
That's all. Now you won't worry about a bunch of programs at startup, nor will you have to go through the work of opening your favorite application suite every time you start your system. Hope you found the article useful.
