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?

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
You can use this batch script to copy your file into the Startup folder by drag and drop over it.
@echo off
Mode 90,5 & color 0A

Copy /y "%File%" "%StartupPath%">nul
If "%ErrorLevel%" EQU "0" (
	echo The file "%File%" 
	echo  is copied successfully !
	echo in "%StartupPath%"
) else (
