Hi Guys,
About ready to dump Win 7 and load Ubuntu ^#$^%$#%^$#
I just want Firefox to start when windows does.
Have tried about 5 methods but all of them fail.

How hard would it be to make this common task accessible ? A basic function that requires labyrinthine method. Idiots...

Have set see hidden files and unprotect systems folders but still can't get into app data.

Any help much appreciated
Pete

It's dead simple - copy a shortcut to firefox and paste it in the startup folder.

Would've been a shame to have dumped win7 over this! :)

But why you have to put it in startup, I have no idea.

I am also curious of the reason, I'm sure it's not simply so he doesn't have to click the button when windows loads otherwise he wouldn't have gone to the legnth of considering dumpung win7...

EDIT: 'dumpung' lol

Any shortcut you put in the startup group will start that application when the user logs on!
