Default Windows Startup Script


I am just being curios here . I want to write a program that will actually greet the user during windows startup. Never Mind the code.

I dont even have the slightest idea of how to make it run during the start up. Any ideas regarding the same will be helpful

Thanks in Advance :)

Hi there,

You can put a short cut in the user's StartUp folder in the Start Menu. You can also create a key in the registry at
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Run to execute programs on startup.

Alternatively, for something more serious than a greeting, you can also write a Windows Service.
