How To Access Startup Folder In Windows 8

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

  1. Press the Windows and R keys at the same time to launch the run window
  2. Enter ‘ %AppData%‘ and hit return
  3. Navigate to C:\Users\<User Profile folder name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup to add/remove items from your startup folder
  4. 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

    looks like windows turned wrong somewhere, don’t you think?
    what’s next, with Win9/Win10/etc: Ctrl+Shift+Alt+F7+PrtScr+S to save?
