Start up folder

I use a program everyday that never gave me a problem until recently.  What happens now is that when I reboot the computer, this program is apparently no longer in the start up menu because I have to manually open it once and after that, it works just fine.  How can I put it back in the start up folder?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Find the program in Windows 10 Start, right click, More, Open File Location, copy the Shortcut to the Program and put it in the Startup Folder.

That should work.

In case you need it, here is the location of the Startup Folder
