Hi,  Is there a way to auto launch an internet shortcut when the pc starts up.  I have tried putting it in the startup menu and then also later into the task manager.  The start up menu did nothing.  The task manger says it is not a valid task.  The internet shortcut I want to launch at startup works just fine when once I have booted up and I then click the shortcut on my desktop.  It is a shortcut using firefox 28 as the browser.  The operating system is Windows 7.  Thank you, Clarke

Which startup menu did you put it in? All users?

Here is a link and article on how to setup a start up program in windows 7.

Hi, Thank you for your response.  I tried putting into both the All and Specific Users Start Up Menu.  Neither worked.  What I put in was an internet shortcut by dragging the shortcut's icon from the desktop to the start up menu.

I'm betting the startup folder doesn't work because you sent fully booted with network connections set yet. Here is s program I found that may do what you need.  http://www.r2.com.au/page/products/show/startup-delayer/

Hi folks,   Thank you for your help.  Discgman, the startup menu did not work, so I tried it in another PC and it worked fine.  Mtz1of4 I found that utility you recommended to be interesting and useful for other things.
