Running applications from TypeItIn

Post by hsokphilly » Wed Jan 23, 2019 10:40 am

I've been able to create a button to run an application, but isn't there a way for TypeItIn to run it for me when TypeItIn opens? TypeItIn opens when Windows opens and I was hoping to start another program automatically. I seem to remember using TypeItIn several years ago and I could start other programs from within. If anyone has an answer, I'd appreciate it.

Typeitin is able to run programs, and you can activate a Typeitin button that runs a program from the command line, but probably the easiest way to run a program when Windows starts is to add it to the Startup folder.

From the TheWindowsClub website:

The simplest way would be to place a shortcut of the Program in the Windows Startup folder.

The Current Users Startup folder in Windows is located at:

C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
These programs start up for the current logged in user only. To directly access this folder, open Run, type shell:startup and hit Enter.
