Using the Same Program Every Day?

April 28th, 2010

There are many situations when it is a good idea to run certain programs at start-up. For example, many Internet users browse the Web on a daily basis, which means that it would be a good idea for them to set their browser to start automatically at start-up. This would eliminate the need to do this manually each time, and as a result it could save a lot of time. On the other hand, other people may always be working with Photoshop, Office, or Flash MX, and it might be a good idea for them to automatically run these programs at start-up each day. All you really have to do to in order to run programs at start-up is to put a shortcut to a desired program into the startup folder: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Start Menu\Programs\Startup (username is your Windows logon name). You can make a shortcut to programs by right-clicking on them and selecting “Create Shortcut”. Of course, this is only a good idea if you plan to use these programs on a daily basis. Take into account that having too many programs running at the same time can slow down your computer, as each programs requires RAM.
