Making Trello open on startup (Windows 10)

I've downloaded the Trello app through the windows store for my windows 10 desktop.

 

I'd like to have it begin automatically when I turn on the computer, but nothing is working. I've tried going into the files to get a shortcut of it to place into the startup file, but it isn't there.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated,

 

Thank you!

Hi @Luke J

Here is Microsoft's guide to adding applications to the startup:

"press the Windows Logo Key + R, type shell:startup, and then select OK. This opens the Startup folder."

 

Copying a Trello Shortcut to this directory should do the trick.

As I said above, I've already gotten that far but can't locate a trello shortcut. I've tried a search, and a manual search, and it's like my computer doesn't have one.

Hi again Luke

I missed that Trello is an App from the Microsoft Store and not a normal application... Sorry!

Here is what worked for me:

If not already done, pin Trello to the Start Menu.

  • Open to the Microsoft Store
  • Open the Trello page
  • Click "Pin to start"

Now create a link in the Startup folder

  • Press the Windows Logo Key + R, type shell:startup, and then select OK. This opens the Startup folder.
  • You can drag and drop the tile from Start to the folder, a link to trello will be created.
  • With a restart you will see this will work. :)

Somehow this only works after someone tells you, it worked this time but it didn't work when I tried it haha

 

Thank you for the help!

You are very welcome. Feel free to accept my answer as solution. :)

So this worked but what a fuss. Other apps just have a setting you can check to say start this sucker when I boot up.

There’s a Power-up for That!

So you’re using Trello at work, at home and to track your new DIY crafts. The family and co-workers are all on board and everything is organized, color coded and has a due date. But still, there’s so...
