How to make Microsoft To-Do automatically start when logging into Windows
Unfortunately, there is no setting inside the Microsoft To-Do app to automatically start when logging in to your Windows computer. Here is our quick guide to get it working.
- Open the Start Menu in Windows 10.
- With your keyboard, type in ‘Run’. Open the Run application.
- In the Run application, type ‘shell:startup’ > click ‘Ok’.
- A Windows Explorer folder will open. This folder contains shortcuts of applications that automatically open when you login to Windows. The address should be:
- Again, open the Run app by: clicking the Start menu button > type ‘Run’ > open the Run app.
- In the Run application, type ‘shell:appsfolder’ > click ‘Ok’.
- Another Windows Explorer folder will open. This folder contains shortcuts to all the apps installed on your computer.
- With the two folders open, find the Microsoft To-Do shortcut icon in the Applications folder > select the Microsoft To-Do icon and drag it to the Start-up folder.
- Microsoft To-Do will now automatically open whenever you login to Windows.
To turn this off, simply go back to the Startup folder and delete the Microsoft To-Do shortcut.
