Auto-load a programme on start -up-How?

  Kooji 12:21 18 Oct 2007

Hi folks
I keep an old laptop(not internet connected),that has a programme loaded on it which I am currently using as part of my studies. Is there a way to make it load-on start up, if so could someone kindly take me through the method?

Thanks all

Sure this is quite straightforward. First find the executable file for the program. This may be on your desktop or in the Start menu. Copy this to the folder in Documents and Settings/your nameaccount/Start Menu/Programs/Start Up.

(Assumes XP but similar folder also exists in Win 98/ME)
