Last week I found a script that allowed me to set my mouse in Windows 10 to reverse scroll. The only issue was that I had to manually run it every time I started my computer, so I went looking for a solution for that, and I’ve found it!
The AutoHotKey manual has instructions for putting scripts in your Windows startup folder. I’m breathing a sigh of relief, because my memory is pretty crap, and now I don’t have to
remember forget to click the script every morning. I love automation!
- Find the script file, select it, and press Control+C.
- Press Win+R to open the Run dialog, then enter
shell:startupand click OK or Enter. This will open the Startup folder for the current user. To instead open the folder for all users, enter
shell:common startup(however, in that case you must be an administrator to proceed).
- Right click inside the window, and click “Paste Shortcut”. The shortcut to the script should now be in the Startup folder.
