In my last post i shown how to  speed up the computer by disabling the some startup programs but some time you need some important programs to run on start up , so in that case you remain that programs enable to start on window start up.But what will happen when some programs don’t have any option to run them on startup in that case you have to manually add those programs to run on window startup .The process of adding programs to the window was quite easy on the earlier version on the windows but on the new version like window 8 it bit difficult to find window startup folder because Microsoft completely removed the start up Menu button from the windows 8 completely through you navigate to the startup folder.So lets see how we can add any program to window startup folder.

1.) First Step of the whole of our process to find the startup folder in window 8 , there are two ways two find the startup folder in window 8.Let see both the ways to find the startup folder in window 8.

2a) The first way to find the window 8 startup folder is to copy the below code and  change Username to the Username of your window folder then paste it in folder and hit Enter .
