Starting WinPET with Windows
In every Start menu, there is a folder called ‘Startup’. The shortcuts in there will automatically load when you log into Windows. By placing a shortcut to WinPET in this folder, it will start automaticlly. The Startup folder is located in
Windows XP: “C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR NAME\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”
Windows Vista: “C:\Users\YOUR NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”
You can save links to your favorite programs and websites on the shortcut screen. The first three shortcuts will also be accessable from the top left corner of the home screen. To edit your shortcuts, click the ‘Edit Shortcuts’ icon in the corner of the shortcut screen. In the ‘Shortcut manager’ you can change the target path and write a custom name for your shortcut. To remove a shortcut, leave the name and path space blank. To add a program or file on your computer you must find and paste the full path of the file. Right-click on the file and click properties. Copy the link next to “Target” and paste it into the slot in WinPET. You can do the same with an internet URL, or simply type in the URL. When you are finished adding the shortcuts, click OK to save and move on to the next 3 shortcuts. You can press CTRL+S at any time to return to the shortcut manager without saving your changes.
WinPET has shortcut slots for the most popular/well known media player, browsers, and IM Clients. Setting up these shortcuts is as simple as the others; all you have to do is find the file path and paste it into WinPET. Unfortunately, WinPET cannot ‘auto-detect’ the location of your applications.
Unfortunately, you cannot move WinPET by clicking and dragging. On the home screen, by holding CTRL and the directional keys, you can change the Position of WinPET on your screen. You can make WinPET float above all other windows by going to the ‘Window Position’ screen in the Customizer and checking the box in the corner. These settings will be reset the next time you open WinPET.
