Having a program run each time you sign in to Windows
If you use a program frequently, you may want to add it to the Start-up folder. Here's how: 1. Right-click Start, click Run, type "shell:startup" (without the quotes) and then press ENTER. 2. Click Start, type the name of a program, right-click a program in a list of results, and then click Open file location. 3.

However, incorrect use of Registry Editor can cause serious, system-wide problems including hard disk corruption, general instability, or the inability to use your computer. It may be necessary for you to reinstall your operating system to correct the problems. Microsoft does not support modifying the registry. Use this tool at your own risk. 1. Press WINDOWS LOGO + R, type "regedit" (without the quotes) and then press ENTER. 2. Double-click the following registry keys: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run 3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click String Value. 4. Type the name of a program and press ENTER. (For example, PowerShell Core.) 5. Double-click a newly-created value, type the drive, path, and the name of a program, and then press ENTER. (For example, C:\Program Files\PowerShell\6\pwsh.exe) 6. Exit Registry Editor. NOTE: On Windows 10 20H1, if you right-click a program, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab, you can enable "Register this program for restart."
"The device is currently in use"
I try to safely eject my USB device and get the message "The device is currently in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and then try again." I get this message 99% of the time - even when no applications or windows are open. Why is this happening? Is there a way to get around this? I never get this message at work or school, unless the USB device is actually in use. I do log in as a standard, non-administrator user. I only elevate to administrator privileges when necessary like installing applications (I also only temporarily elevate privileges; I never log on as an administrator). So when I get the "The device is currently is use." message, I right-click on start button and click Disk Management. I know that I can safely remove the device by going into Disk Management and taking the device offline. However, I cannot elevate to administrator privileges to get into Disk Management. I get the following message: "You are logged on as a standard user. You can view device settings in Device Manager, but you must be logged on as an administrator to make changes." I don't want to log on as an administrator, but I do want to temporarily elevate to administrator privileges to take the device offline. Is there a way to do this? When I'm logged on as standard user and want to install an application, I get prompted for an administrator password. I want the same thing to happen when I go to Device Manager and other areas that require administrator rights.
