Create automatic program startup in Windows 8
If you want to make a program such as Outlook start up automatically when you start Windows first you have to get to the hidden start up folder.
Any shortcut you place in the Startup folder will automatically run when you login to your system.
All you need to do is create a shortcut to the program, the batch file, the script, or whatever it is that you want to have automatically run when you start up in this folder and it will.
If you cannot get to the program you want first add it to the desktop screen
Taskbar like this:
1. In the Windows 8 Metro screen RIGHT click the icon for the program you want
2. Select Pin to Start from the bottom of the screen.
3.return to the classic desktop screen and you will see the icon on the bottom bar. now you can drag it to the folder as detailed above.
1. RIGHT click in the folder window and select New>Shortcut
(the x86 may not be necessary if you are using 64bit office versions. Also the Office 14 is valid for office 2010 so this may vary)
Give the shortcut a name and click FINISH
