For details, please refer to the following article. Admin access is available to make whatever changes are needed to answer this question. It was run over my Windows 7 hope premium of which I enjoyed very much, also have long boot up times sticking on welcome page, I have all kinds of utilities and scan and repair drive every time I close the machine , but when I turn on the machine again it is busy scanning and repairing the C: drive before booting! Since the author's original website where I found the script is now gone, I'll post the code I use here in its entirety. That's what I thought, does the other path do the same function? You can download: It's a single, portable program that will show you the location where they are installed for the startup as shown:. The second Startup folder is for programs that run at startup for all users on the puter. Hi, Thanks for posting your issue in the forum.
The same Quick Access and Start Menu tricks mentioned above apply to the All Users Startup folder. If I want to stop the program from starting I remove the shortcut from this folder. Got ya, but would it hurt or break anything using the other path? I hope that this helps, and if you have questions or comments please do not hesitate to let me know. Has something been changed in Server 2012-R2 security?? This will work for the administrator user, plus when you deploy this from and use sysprep it will make sure that this config is part of the default user and so new users will get it too. How could I shutdown windows 2012? The configuration of BgInfo when it is working is relatively simple and so I will let you deal with it. I can verify that it works in server 2008 r2 and server 2012 r2.
So, where did the Startup folder go?? Why can't Microsoft just stick with what they are good at? In the old way, I set remote desktop client icon, to run a particular sw at startup, and that was all. Perhaps this is more of an issue with Adobe, but nonetheless, I assumed that software which worked under Windows 7 would work identically under Windows 8. When user close the program, also close the remote desktop session. How could I show old start menu all programs and run command? Many programs run when Windows starts, but they are launched via other more complicated methods. Do you miss the old Start Menu on Windows Server 2012 when remotely administering your servers? I really want to like Windows 8, but am having some difficulties. Any thoughts why the 1st solution doesn't work?? There are a lot of usage scenarios for such a folder, my specific use case is mapping a remote windows share as a drive, for which I use a batch file.
AutoHotkey and Bitorrent, I want to keep then starting wherever they are stored. But it is not configured for the display that you want. I used to be able to do this by putting different shortcuts in each user's Startup folder in the Start Menu. What do I do in that case? Not all of these parameters will be seen in the screenshot below. I'm the only one using this computer. If you are coming from the Linux world you can think of it like one of the cron folders common to linux except that rather than executing its contents on a schedule it executes them whenever a user logs in.
This is not about controlling the , it's about controlling which user s see which startup programs. The config I like is seen below. Now we have BgInfo configured to be started from the Utilities folder on the Aero desktop, but also to be automatically executed at log in. It can have any name but I used normal. This will work for the administrator user, plus when you deploy this from template and use sysprep it will make sure that this config is part of the default user and so new users will get it too. The utilities folder was seen right away, but the utilities in it were not visable for a while and two restarts.
Some people still don't know how to do those things. If anything, they should be working more on the security of things - keep updating on protections from viruses, trojans, worms, etc. Maybe just stick to Xbox and keep Windows looking and working like Windows 7. The old way doesn't work anymore. Metro is a tablet interface, not a desktop one.
Well my original comment was because you provided a link-only answer which is still the case since it just points to a comment, when that's no longer the case the answer I will likely be helpful. We don't write manuals these days explaining how to move a mouse, click, start up the computer, open a basic program and manipulate windows, etc. It is a little different than in the past but I still need my BgInfo info screen displayed so this is what I figured out. So pretty much this is solved. A non-administrator can't change those settings, so having a program start up that's only useful to admins is not very useful, especially when the program just shows an error and even more especially when that error window cannot be dismissed until an administrator's information is entered.
Everyone I know hates Windows 8. One of the lovely things about Microsoft that baffles us and keeps us employed. Please understand that ProgramData folder is hidden by default, we should make Windows Explorer show the hidden items first to see this folder. I cannot believe that Microsoft thought that people would have a touch screen on the server. This is the way I make BgInfo work in Windows 2012 and even Windows 7 too.
