Windows 8’s new interface has some huge benefits once you get used to it, but it does away with a lot of tried and tested favorites like easy access to the Windows Startup folder. I couldn’t find an easy way to do, so I thought I’d share the best way I’ve found to access the Windows 8 startup folder.
How To Access The Windows 8 Startup Folder
- Press the Windows and R keys at the same time to launch the run window
- Enter ‘ %AppData%‘ and hit return
- Navigate to C:\Users\<User Profile folder name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup to add/remove items from your startup folder
- Optional: To access your windows 8 startup folder quickly, rightclick on the startup folder and select ‘Pin to Start’ to add the startup folder to the Windows homescreen
