How do I get Snap Core First to launch automatically when I startup.

June 12, 2017

First, check to see if you have the Windows Settings Utility installed.  The Windows Settings Utility is on all I-110 and Indi devices as well as I-12+ and I-15+ devices running Windows 10 Professional.  

  1. On the Windows Task bar, where it says Type here to search, type "Windows Settings Utility"
  2. Select Windows Settings Utility from the list.
  3. Select Enable Run Snap at Startup
  4. Choose Close
If you do not have the Windows Settings Utility follow the steps below:

How to create a shortcut for Snap in the Startup Folder:
1. In the search box (or Cortana) type 'run'.
2. In the search results, you will see Run (desktop app). Select Run.
3. In the Run dialog box, type 'shell:startup'.  This will open the Startup folder in the File Explorer.

5. Long-touch (or right-click click with a mouse) within the folder and select New > Shortcut.
6. In the Create Shortcut dialog type '%windir%\System32\cmd.exe /c start com.tobiidynavox.snap:'

NOTE:  The S in system must be capitalized and there is a space between .exe and /c, between c and start, and between start and com. There is a colon at the end of this line. If you enter it wrong you will get an error back.
7. Click Next
8. You will be asked to name the shortcut. Name it Snap (or whatever you want, but probably not the suggested Cmd.).

You're done! The next type the system boots up, Snap will automatically run!
