It's me again.
As always, there are two ways to acomplish this task.
1) Adding a key to the registry to cause an application to start at startup.
2) Via a batch file in the Startup folder.
Let's go with option 2) since it's safer the option 1). I rarely tell people to modify or add things in the registry as it is very dangerous if you make a mistake.
I'll assume that your .rtf file is on your desktop
. If it's not please move it to your desktop. I also do not know the name of your file that you want to open, so for this case, simply rename that file to MyScript.rtf
Then create a batch file.Create batch script
- Copy the following into a notepad (Start>Run>"notepad"). Do not copy the word "quote".
start "" "%userprofile%\desktop\MyScript.rtf" /max
- Click File, then Save As... .
- Click Desktop on the left.
- Under the Save as type dropdown, select All Files.
- In the box File Name, input Script.bat.
- Hit OK.
Please copy and paste
that file to the startup folder. To do this, right-click on your start menu
and select explore
. Double click on Programs
folder and then double click on startup
folder. Please paste the batch file there.
Reboot your computer and that file of yours shall open.
Good luck! Let me know if there were any issues.
/Edit: You can also add more than one file/appplication to be opened at startup using 1 batch file. This may take sometime for the computer to acomplish the task though. For example: opening only that one .rtf file may take some time (3-4 sec) as there are probably other applications in the registry that needs to be started first. This may include your security programs or other softwares that are needed to be started at startup. If you would like me to create 1 batch file for any other files, all I will need is the exact file name and extension and the exact location of that file.
