  1. Autorunning an app at startup can be done in several ways depending on your operating system. Here are the general steps for some common platforms: Windows: Startup Folder: Press Win + R to open the Run dialog box. Type shell:startup and hit Enter. This opens the Startup folder. Copy a shortcut of the application into this folder. Task Scheduler: Search for "Task Scheduler" in the Start menu and open it. Click on "Create Basic Task" from the right-hand menu. Follow the wizard to set a name, trigger (choose "When the computer starts"), action (select "Start a program"), and browse to select the application's executable file. macOS: Login Items: Go to System Preferences > Users & Groups. Click on your username and go to the "Login Items" tab. Click the "+" button and add the application to the list. Launch Agents: Create a .plist file in /Library/LaunchAgents or ~/Library/LaunchAgents (for a specific user). Set the ProgramArguments key to the path of the application executable. Linux (Ubuntu): Startup Applications: Go to "Startup Applications" or search for it in the application menu. Click "Add" or "New" and add the application with its command or path. rc.local: Edit the /etc/rc.local file and add a line to start the application before the exit 0 line. Note: Ensure you have the necessary permissions to modify system startup settings. Always be cautious about what applications you set to autorun for security and performance reasons. Choose the method that best suits your preferences and system requirements.
