You can have any app, shortcut, folder, drive, file, script, etc.. items automatically open or run at startup.
By default, Windows will run the items in yourÂ StartupÂ folder (shell:startup) after about a 10 second delay at Windows startup when you sign in to your account. This was done to help improve the performance of Windows startup. If you have a fast computer, then you may wish to disable this startup delay to have your startup items run as soon as you sign-in instead of delayed.
This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the delay of running startup apps at Windows startup for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
