Application at Startup

How do I get Stride to automatically open at startup for both Mac and PC? We have a staff that uses it here at our church who constantly forgets to open it. It would be great if there was a startup selection within stride.

Hi Jon,

Currently this option isn't available for Stride but you can track the request A work around for windows was suggested here in this previous answer. 

  • Right click the stride Icon in the start menu and click Open File Location. Leave this window open.
  • press the Windows Logo Key + R, type shell:startup, and then select OK.
  • Now Copy and paste the Stride Shortcut from the first folder into the Startup Folder.

Hope this helps,
