There are 4 ways to run a program on startup.
- On a Run register enter
- On Start up folder (C:\Users\Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Startup or C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup)
- On a scheduled task (%windir%\system32\taskschd.msc /s)
- As a service (%windir%\system32\services.msc)
