With Windows 8.1, the shortcut method of starting Artist at Windows start up no longer works as expected.

The best way to start Artist automatically in Windows 8.1 is to add a task to the Windows Task Scheduler. In future version of Artist you will be able to do this in Artist Preferences. For now, however, here is the procedure.

General Tab

Triggers Tab

You now have to force Windows to open on the desktop.
