    Hi
    what program do you use to add a startup program in windows 7?

    i still have startup control panel 2.8 _http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

    but really very old

    is there a similar alternative?
    a simple tool , maybe without installation and free

    thanks

    just create a shortcut and drag it to the Startup folder

    this is the location in Windows 8.
    it's probably the same in 7:
    Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    maybe someone else can help.

    it's against my religion to install a program when i can do without. :D

    For what you want, WhatInStartup, from NirSoft is excellent.
