Add batch file to the Start folder? (hide Safely Remove Hardware icon)

I have finally found a way to get rid of the annoying Safely Remove Hardware icon in the Task Tray that consistently works on my little computer.

It is this batch file:
https://www.raymond.cc/blog/download/did/581/
from:
https://www.raymond.cc/blog/hide-or-...are-tray-icon/

but I now need a little help please ....
It tells me to add the batch file to the Start folder but I am flummoxed and don't have a clue how to do that.
As it is I have to run it at each start-up and the fleeting black screen with white text comes and goes before I can read it properly.

You lot have helped me so many times here I'm hoping you can this time too please

Sounds like they want you to put in the Startup Folder at: C:\Users\"your user name"\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup then leave a shortcut to it in there.

Good Luck

Just for future reference: the quick way to get there is press Winkey r, then type shell:startup and hit Enter.
