Add Trello shortcut to autostart folder

Hi all! Has anybody figured out how to add the trello shortcut to the autostart folder on Windows 11? Or just simply create a shortcut on the desktop? I have downloaded the app via App Store on Windows and I cant find the location of the file or copy it from the start menu to any other location.

Hi, after some research I found that this is the way of doing it: Run Microsoft Store apps on Startup - Windows 10  

Hi Roman. Did you ever solve this? I am roaming around the web for solutions but it seems that nobody knows how to do it. All the solutions I've seen so far are intended for Windows 10 and don't work on Windows 11.

Hi Gregory, of course.. those clips appear at the top of the search result :D
It's just in the case of Trello app there is no "open file location" option..

Yes, that is how I found them, lol :)

Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce the in as I do not have win 11 yet, sorry.

P.S. As indicated here:

Trello desktop apps

You should be able to invoke Trello from anywhere by using Ctrl + Alt + T

Have you tried this?

yeah, I know about the shortcut.. but the app needs to be running for it to work. That's the reason I want to put it into autostart..

Like Grigory Salnikov likes this

I see.

I also found this method:

Win+I > Apps > StartUp > Toggle startup button.

By the way, does this app appear in the "all apps" list? If it does, you can try to drag-and-drop it on the desktop.

its not listed in the startup section..

and you cant drag&drop it from all apps or from start menu.

Hi there!


I can't get TRELLO to run at startup. Isn't there no way to get this done???
