How can I make a program run on start-up?

I'd want to make a Python program to be automatically ran on start-up, how could that be done? Should I shout it "RUN OR DIE!"? I'm using Windows 10.

Windows has a startup folder where you can place a shortcut to an executable, and windows will automatically execute them on startup. You can access it by pressing windows key + 'r' and typing "shell:startup" to open the folder I believe. Another way would be to add the executable to the registry, but the other one is probably safer.


Dennis Yes, the first way was simple and it worked well, thanks.
