If you want to have a more structured way of starting your programs in Windows:
I've developed a Start Applications Tool. You can download it here:
After downloading the zip file "startApplications.zip" you can unpack it and start the application called "startApplication,exe". The configuration file is called "startApplications.ini" and will be generated if it's not there. You can change the applications by drag and drop with any .exe file.
Important: Maybe you'll be asked to update your .net framework.
In case you have problems finding the download windows deskiop 8.0.1: take this download file, unpack and runi it
Important: If you are using Antivirus Software like Norton you will get a Warning. Answer the system that you trust the startapplication.exe program.
If you have any questions: contact me.
You can find the source code here on Github:

Feel free to download the sources and clone them to make your own GUI!
