That just put a ahk acript in the allusers programs startup folder name autorun?
It actually puts a shortcut there .. and thats it.
That script should run everytime windows boots up
Edit: Those are the beginning lines.. you should type the rest of the script, ofcourse.
I fell upon this forum as I was looking for the same thing. Turns out, if you put your script.ahk file in the "startup" folder it will run automatically. To access the startup folder you need to go to
Computer --> Local Disc (C:) --> Users --> "yourusername" --> AppData (hidden folder) --> Roaming --> Microsoft --> Windows --> Start Menu --> Programs --> Startup
If you paste your script in here, it will run when you log on.
This topic appears to be pretty old so just fyi I'm using Windows 7.
