I know that in Windows 10 - the startup programs are now listed under the Task Manager>Startup tab. And that is great - but how do I add additional software apps to the startup list? For example Google Chrome web browser is in my startup tab on default - but how do I add Firefox or Internet Explorer or even MS Word to the startup list so they are in there permanently?

To do that simply :
Place a shortcut in the following location C:\Users\<YOURUSERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup (the shortcut of the application)

Go to the program you want to add to StartUp > right click at the program > click Create Shortcut > save it to a folder or to your desktop > right click at the shortcut > click Copy.

Open Run > at the Run box, type %AppData% > click OK .

You are now on Roaming window > right side, click open Microsoft > scroll down and click open Windows > click open Start Menu > click open Programs > click open Startup

you are now at Startup window > right side, right click at an open spot > click Paste > the program you want to add is now in the Startup.
