    Greetings, npe511 !

    Go to Start > Programs and copy the Outlook shortcut to the Startup folder.  Or you can create a shortcut of Outlook.exe from Outlook folder and copy to the Startup folder.

    Best wishes!

    Go to Start > Programs.  
    Right click on Outlook shortcut and select Copy.
    Click on Programs > Start Up and hightlight one of the startup programs.
    Hit CTRL + V to paste the Outlook shortcut to the Startup folder.

    Now when you reboot your computer, Outlook will start up.
