I'm setting up a media pc for a relative and wanted the windows netflix app to start up when the pc does.
it's win10 64bit.
Is there a way to do this or do i need to create a batch file that kicks it off and then place that as a start up.

Go here by right clicking the start menu and choosing Run and in the Run dialog box type
shell:appsfolder
hit enter
Find your Netflix icon, right click it and choose create shortcut
It'll ask if you want to create the shortcut on your desktop instead. Say yes
Go to the shortcut on your desktop and move it to here
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp
Reboot and see if that does what you want.
Keep us posted.

Yep, so do I and yes it works as one might expect, but.....
I think the OP was wanting it to run at Startup automatically.

Hence my post above.
