VISTA Startup Menu

by fun111 / October 25, 2008 11:09 AM PDT

I have VISTA o/S in my computer. I also have Firefox installed in my computer. How do I get Firefox automatically opened on each new start of my computer?

I could not find instructions for the above in any Help menu. Those instructions must be somewhere. So, incidentally, where are those instructions?

Thank you very much.

a shortcut of Firefox in the START > ALL PROGRAMS > STARTUP folder. Every time you reboot, Firefox will open.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
