Turn Tablet Mode off
The first thing which you need to do is to Turn Off the tablet mode so that you can work on the desktop. Then you will be required to open the Start folder, from the left corner of your screen. Once you click on the Startup folder, you just need to press the Winkey+R combination key so that you can get the Run window.
Alternate option to bring Run window is to press Tab and hold the Start button or simply right click on the Start button.
Once the Run window is opened, you will have to type “shell:startup” which will bring the startup folder on your desktop screen. Most of the times, it will be empty because there are other methods too, to tell your system to autoload your favorite programs.
Now, as the Startup folder is before your eyes, you will need to add shortcuts for your favorite programs that you would like to start at the boot time. For this, you just right click anywhere in the empty space inside the folder and go to New>Shortcut. Once you do this, you will have to follow the wizard but this can be a complicated task for newbies.
The easiest way to add these program shortcuts in the Startup folder is the traditional drag and drop one. Yes, if you want to use this feature and you have got an icon for the specific program on your system, you just need to drag the icon but it will not copy.
If you want the icon to remain at both the places, you will need to press the key C while dragging the icon and it will ensure that this will be intact even at your desktop.
In case if you do not have the program icon on the desktop, just find it anywhere in your system, which will be mostly found in All Apps or in the Start menu. Once you locate the icon, you need to just do the same thing, drag and drop in the Startup folder.
