Hello all
I would like to be able to have my wife's Outlook 2007 automatically start up. To have it minimized would be even better. Is there a way to move it to the start up folder?

Thanks in advance for the help :thumbsup:

You should be able to add it to your startup folder.

Start > All Programs > Startup

(assuming you're running Windows)

Perfect. I was able to start minimized as well. I did find that my Microsoft Office was not listed anymore in my "All Programs folder" (Office Standard 2007 to be exact) Anyone with a solution for that? I do keep a shortcut in my taskbar with Outlook and Word.

Thanks so much
Tom

Okay the Start Menu is a "hidden system file" you will need to enable viewing this.

The Folder Location is the same as Vista:
C:\Users\username
In you rcase you might want to edit the default user.

Under Organize > Folder and Search Options > View Tab:

There is a Checkbox that sas "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
You will need to un check th is so you can edit your Start Menu Folder. Otherwise you will not see it.

You can Right Click + drag the Program you want from the:
C:\Program Files
or
C:\Program Files (X86)

(Make Shortcut) To the Start up folder.

I think that sounds confusing but i'm not sure how else to put it. :thumbsup:

In short, you need to make a shortcut in your Start Menu.

Thanks for the replies

I did make shortcuts for all 4 items in my Office folder. I then switched users and found the Microsost Office folder on the desktop. I was able to put it back into the All Programs folder and then copied it and put it back in my All Programs folder. Alls good :thumbsup:
