loading several new programs at start up

  cactusjack 13:31 08 Jun 08

Hello everyone,

Is there a way within Windows XP for me to choose to load several new programs at start up?

For example:

- I want Internet Explorer to load up with a certain website
- My documents folder to open up
- World of Warcraft to load up
- and Mozilla to load up with yahoo webmail

Is there a way for me to have all of the above open automatically in addition to the usual stuff that loads when the desktop appears after logging in?

Just put short cuts to each in the startup folder.

should be.

It will work for IE Mozilla and My docs don't know about WOW as I don't have it.

Just remember the more programs you have in start up the longer the computer will take to boot up and shut down

If the game requires a CD / DVD, it would need to be in the drive...Could play havoc with your AV programme, and drastically slow boot time.

No CD required - loads from hard drive
