Tech Tip: Windows Startup Folder

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!

How-To

  1. Find the script file, select it, and press Control+C.
  2. Press Win+R to open the Run dialog, then enter shell:startup and 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).
  3. Right click inside the window, and click “Paste Shortcut”. The shortcut to the script should now be in the Startup folder.

Tech Tip: iPhone Precision Keyboard Cursor

Selecting text on my iPhone has always been frustrating, but it’s been especially so since they stopped magnifying the text when you long press it. What I didn’t know, until recently, is that Apple updated the way the cursor works in iOS 12 — two years ago!
