Where is the Startup Folder in Windows 7?

Now that Windows 7 is out on the market, and the Microsoft marketing machine is in full gear, people are starting to go out and purchase their Windows 7 upgrades to finally release them from the oppression that is Windows Vista, or they finally want to upgrade now that their is a decent replacement for Windows XP. With the upgrade will come a few changes, so getting used to your new operating system will require a little bit of a learning curve.

One item that Windows XP users will have to understand is the location of the Startup folder in Windows 7. For you Vista veterans, you can go about your day, because it is in the same place in Vista as Windows 7. For you XP folks, who haven’t played with Vista or Windows 7 Beta, I’ll give you the low down.

In Windows 7 the location of your personal startup folder is:

%systemdrive%\users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
For all users, you will find the startup folder in:
%systemdrive%\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
I hope this little tid-bit of info helps in your transition!
