Specs: Vista Home, -
Hello,
I have created a new user account, and want to add some shortcuts to that users start up folder, but the folder is not there.
I have tried just making a folder called start up in the right place but that dose not work (oppening the programs when i log on).
Anyone know how to fixs this problem?
Any help,
Thanks.

That page is about using group policy, but i can't becasue that computer is not on a domain and is the Home version of Vista. I need to use a local method.
