automatically start new ringcentral app with windows
I installed the new windows desktop ringcentral app. I no longer see the option to set the app to automatically start with windows. This was available in the old classic app so I'm not sure if I'm missing it somewhere or if it was deleted. This option is very useful to have.
Lori, feeling your pain! While we wait for fix, there are two ways to have Windows start an app for you.
1) Start > Settings > Apps > Startup and find the app you want, and turn it on. I expect you may see the new RC app there with a blank icon or not be there. If you see it, turn it on, restart or log out/log in, see if it works. If not....
Select the Start button and scroll to find the app you want to run at startup.
Right-click the app, select More, and then select Open file location. This opens the location where the shortcut to the app is saved. If there isn't an option for Open file location, it means the app can't run at startup.
With the file location open, press the Windows logo key + R (or Start > type "run<enter>") , type shell:startup, then select OK. This opens the Startup folder.
Copy and paste the shortcut to the app from the file location to the Startup folder.
That should make sure it happens whenever you log in. #glip #startup
Thanks Mitch. Always good to know I'm not alone! I knew how to add it my startup folder and I found the exact same instruction page on Microsoft to send to staff. But not all of them feel so comfortable doing things like that and they don't always reach out to ask me to do it or help them through it. If I could just tell them to check an option in the app, I could get them all to do it and not have people forgetting to open it each day.
