My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I would like to include the Magnifier to start up whenever I boot up.  
Hope the experts can please advise what is the command syntax for this, and how to implement this as I have not done this before.  
I have 2 monitors, therefore I would like the magnifier to be on the 2nd monitor maximized so that whatever I view on monitor 1, could be magnified on the 2nd monitor.
Thank u.

For your specific user - Place a shortcut in
C:\Users\{your user name here}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

or for all users - Place a shortcut in
C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
(Probably the best choice)

Procedure for creating the shortcut ....
while holding down ctrl, drag the application shortcut into the startupitems folder in the startmenu to copy.

(I'm not too sure how it will work out with the second monitor)

If you right click on the newly created shortcut and choose properties, you can set it open maximised.

You need to unhide system files and hidden file in windows explorer to navigate to the above locations.
