    请问怎么设置软件开机自启动?… in German and English … (Google Translate)

    “How can I set the software to start on my computer?
    Wie kann ich die Software so einstellen, dass sie auf meinem Computer startet?”

    Create a shortcut in the “Startup” folder.
    Erstelle eine Verknüpfung im “Startup”-Ordner.

    C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Textify.exe.LNK (.lnk file!) …
    Target: Path\to\Textify.exe -hidewnd, e.g. C:\Tools\Textify\Textify.exe -hidewnd

    user = your username
    parameter: -hidewnd = Textify icon in Systray

    (Textify.exe -hidewnd starts Textify and the program icon is immediately displayed in the taskbar (vulgo System Tray)).
