Heya,

I have a document in which I keep a log of all my jobs to do at work. Is there any way I can make this document load automatically once I logon to Windows (XP-Pro)?

Or, even stranger, can I make this document my desktop, without having to take a new screenshot every time I make a change to it..? Just a thought, probably the first way is far easier.

Thanks!

Alex

I don't know a way to do exactly that.
You can display a picture file on your desktop and you would have to do a sceenshot to accomplish that, but you can make a keyboard shortcut to it, opening it with the press of a key or combination of keys.

If that will work for you there is a small freeware ap that will let you do so named Copernic WinKey which you can download here:

Enthusiast: Thanks for the suggestion, but it seems WinKey is no longer available at that link...

medab1: That worked fine! I dragged a shortcut to the document into my Startup folder and it opened in Word. Thanks for steering me towards that thread!
