Windows 10 has many startup folders, one for all user and each user has a separate startup folder. If you do not share the computer for anyone else then you can add to Startup folder of All User or add to Startup folder of your personal folder (it will work the same). But if you share you computer with other users, you should only add to your "personal Startup folder".

- Add programs to the Startup folder  of All User: These programs will automatically launch when any users login the computer.
