Set Chrome to Auto-Start in Windows 10

This article notes how to set Windows 10 to auto-start Chrome for the currently logged in user (or any other application).

  1. Press the Windows key and R together to open the run dialog.
  2. In the run dialog window, type "shell:startup" (without the quotes) and press OK.
  3. A File Explorer window will open up.  The path will be "Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup".
  4. Copy and paste a shortcut of the program that you want to automatically start when a specific user logs into the workstation into the File Explorer window.
