Start me up! is a tool that can start multiple programs with a single click, giving you control
over the order in which they are started, and the time that the computer should wait between
For example, if you are a web developer, you may need to start 2 or 3 web browsers, 1 or 2
editors, an image browser, and an FTP client, every time that you “get to work”. By setting this
programs in Start me up!, you only need to click once to have them all open.
When you close Start me up!'s main window. It will remain in the system tray, from where you can start any of the configured programs again, either individually, or all of them. This way, you can unclutter your desktop by deleting the shortcuts to the programs in Start me up!
Personally, I use it at work everyday.
When I get to the office, I wait for the computer to load Start me up!, and then, while it
launches all my programs, I go get a cup of coffee, and socialize a bit. When I come back, all
my programs are waiting for me. It saves me time, and makes sure that all the programs are
started (Yes, it seemed that when I was doing it “old style” I always forgot one). When I use
the computer at home, I don't have to wait for a dozen programs to load as I would if they
have been using the old “Startup” folder.
I hope that you will enjoy using Start me up!, and that it will make your life a little bit easier.
Normally, if you want multiple programs to start automatically when the computer is turned on,
you would add them to the “Startup” folder.
However, when you do so, they are all basically started simultaneously. This has an impact in
the startup performance, since there will be multiple programs accessing the disk
Start me up! takes care of that, by allowing you to set up a delay between programs, and to
decide in which order they will be started.
