Different startup programs for different users?
I was wondering, can I set certain programs to autostart for certain users
but not for others? My wife gets annoyed when all my game/display/pda stuff
autostarts when she logs on with her user name.

Thanks,

Eric

Hi Eric,

Yes you can.

First, remove or disable the program from the startup program list to
stop it from running on all users accounts at startup. Option Two in
this tutorial will show you how to if needed.

Next, just place a shortcut of the program you want to startup in the
user account's Start menu "Startup" folder at:

"C:\Users\(Your Username)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start
Menu\Programs\Startup"
