Desklock Startup
« on: March 25, 2009, 11:11:46 AM »
I was wondering if there is a way to get desklock to automatically run when I start my computer up. I saved the .exe file, but as things are, I have to run it each time I restart.

Win key + R, type (or copy and paste without the quotes) "shell:startup", create a shortcut to desklock.exe in that folder (startup folder).

Thank you. It now runs at start up, but the icon doesn't appear in the system tray.

That's odd. Did you by any chance change the icon behavior to "Always hide"? (right-click on the Taskbar, select "Properties", click on "Customize" tab)

I ended up dragging Desklock to the system tray and then restarting. It seems to have worked. Thank you for all your help!
