Auto-importing a registry key when starting up Windows

This functions (somewhat) like the rcx.d scripts that run upon startup on a Unix machine. Click “Start > Run…”. Type “regedit” in the text box to open the Registry Editor.

Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Run

You should see a list of applications that run on startup in the right panel. Right-click, and choose “New > String Value”. Name it anything you want, then double-click this new entry and enter in the “Value Data” field:

regedit /s D:\path\to\registry\file.reg

You will need to change the path, of course. The /s basically indicates a silent import of the specified registry file.
