[access-uk] Re: Putting Something Into Start-Up Folder

Hi Darran,

Here's a tip for finding the location of programs - or at
least those which appear in the Programs list.

Highlight the program in the list.  Then right click on it
and select Properties.

Look at the "Target:" field.  On my system for Outlook
Express this shows as,
"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe"

I have to confess "msimn" not exactly an intuitive name for
this program!
