When installing the software, you have the option to select "Add to Startup" - check this at the end of install, and the software shortcut will be placed in your user's Startup group.
To do this manually / after install, you can do the following:
If there is a Desktop shortcut, right-click on it, and select Copy - otherwise, use the Start Menu and find the program, then right-click on it, and select Copy. Now type Win-R (Windows key + R) to open the Run Dialog, and enter %APPDATA% - this will open File Explorer at your user's AppData/Roaming location. From there, open folders Microsoft | Windows | Start Menu | Programs | Startup, and then right-click in the blank area for that folder, and Paste - this will place the shortcut for the selected program into the Windows Startup for you.
Alternatively, you can place the shortcut in C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup using File Explorer.
If you wish to drop the shortcut into the Startup for All Users, you can do the following after you copy the shortcut: Win-R (Windows Key + R) and enter %PROGRAMDATA%, then drill into Microsoft, Windows, Start Menu, Programs, Startup, then right-click in the blank area for the folder, and Paste - this will place the shortcut for the selected program into the All Users StartUp area.
To review Startup programs, right-click on the Start Menu, then select Task Manager, and click on the Startup tab.
