Put a shortcut to the folder into each user's "Startup" folder.

open up automatically... a folder needs to be clicked to open it, I doubt you can do that automatically

Thanks to all responders. I tried putting a shortcut in the startup folders but nothing happens. I will try the batchfile option but I need to find out how to open a required folder that will be nested inside each identity's 'My Documents' folder.

Any ideas out there for the folder which will be called called 'Abel options'?
