Windows 7: New to Windows 7, empty startup folder

New to Windows 7, empty startup folder

I just got my new Thinkpad E530 and was poking about a bit and noticed I have a folder in my 'All Programs' called Startup that is empty. I was wondering if it should be like this and if I am able to delete it or if I should just leave it be?

Thanks

Welcome to the forum,

Yeah, that's normal and I would just leave it be, we all have that.
