To Print this page, Ctrl-P

In Windows 10, Microsoft says: Run a program automatically when Windows starts.

To have a web page open automatically when you start up your Windows 10 PC, you can create a shortcut to the desired web page URL as the target. Here's how you can do it:

Create a Shortcut:
Right-click on your desktop or in a folder where you want to create the shortcut. Select "New" and then "Shortcut." Specify the desired Web page:
In the "Create Shortcut" wizard, you'll be asked to enter the location of the item for which you want to create a shortcut. Here, you should paste the name of the web page. For example, to bring up the JohnBMoss home page, you might enter something like:
Click "Next"

Name the Shortcut:
Give the shortcut a name, e.g., "Open My Home Page."

Finish Creating the Shortcut:
Click "Finish" to create the shortcut on your desktop or in the folder you selected. Next, edit the Shortcut Properties: Right-click on the shortcut you just created and select "Properties."

Validate the Web Page URL as the Target: Make sure that what you see is what you intended, make any changes necessary at this point, then Click "OK" to save your changes. Now, to test this, you double-click this shortcut. It should open your chosen web page and automatically navigate to it.

To have it run at startup:

Caution: too many programs being invoked at Startup will clog your PC performance.
This tip provides a means of starting your PC and enabling web access dynamically. Adding more programs in this manner must further slow down the Startup process. If your System performance suffers as a result of this procedure, removing the offending Startup task is easy: right click on the task in the Startup folder and select 'Delete'.
