Click Start, then move to programs and find the shortcut yo want. Right click and hold the button down on the shortcut and then drag it to your startup section of the same menu. When that opens, move the cursor over the opened menu and let go of the mouse button. You will get a prompt to copy or move. Select copy (left click) and on you next re-boot, the program the shortcut refers to will be invoked.
Good luck, Garry.
