Default Start-up folder?

What is Win 10's equivalent of the Startup folder that was in earlier
OS versions?

Same. Why should it change? Any ideas?

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windo ws\Start
Menu\Programs\Startup

Username is your Windows profile name or some call it windows account name.

AppData is hidden by default.

You can get to your startup folder by right-clicking on the start button
and choosing run. Then type:

shell:startup

Does this help or do you still need pictures to depict this in motion?

It's still there in File Explorer:

C:\Users\[your user name]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start
Menu\Programs\Startup

That's the specific users menu, and the one for 'All Users' is at:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

Geez, I don't remember having to dig through all those folder levels.
I think I remember the Start Menu folder being right under the [user
name] menu. And I'm sure that I could drag a shortcut from the desktop
to the Startup group in the start menu. But the start menu has change
drastically and no longer shows a Startup group.

Anyway, thanks, much appreciated.
