Well I'm starting to replace my older XP Pro machines (as they die) with Windows 7 Pro.

Of course they had to change a bunch of stuff and it's a little confusing trying to find the old stuff within the new configuration.

I'm trying to place a script in the "Startup Folder" for the default user but can't seem to find where it goes. Anybody have the answer?
All my searches so far point to a folder that I can't find. I've already got "show hidden files and folders" turned on.

(Maybe we need a TIPS & TRICKS just for Windows 7?)

Thanks in Advance

of course after I post this I find the solution myself. Oh well, maybe somebody else could use this information.

This is the startup folder For All Users in Windows 7

NOTE: The all users Startup folder is a hidden system folder located at:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup


I still think we need a "Tips and Tricks" just for Windows 7. BigWeb....... :P

I decided that if I'm going to start installing on other machines I should probably have it on mine as well...... What a pain in the a$$.

I forgot to save a bunch of things including "My favorites" before the format........ oops!!! 50+ shortcuts gone.....

I was also running a few programs before that won't run on Windows 7 so I've had to find the latest versions. I've spent over 5hrs on it so far and I'm still not done.

Oh well! Live and Learn.

Depending on what version you are running you can use XP Mode for older applications that do not function on Windows 7.

I have setup several WIN7 machines and took maybe two hours tops to do.

I've got it cooking now. I knew about the XP mode thing but I figured I'd only do that if I couldn't upgrade my software first. Turns out I could so I'll be installing the latest versions.
