JSI Tip 0921. Do you get an open Window for every root folder at logon?

This happens when you empty or delete the value at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\Common Startup

This type REG_EXPAND_SZ value should point to the All Users Startup folder.


%SystemRoot%\Profiles\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
