Default Opening Browser Window on Windows Start Up

How do I get my browser to open up everytime I start up windows? I need it to point to a specific domain, not the home page domain.

Thanks

Ben

What you could do is go to the domain/page you want to come up each time then create a shortcut to that link in the All Users startup menu or the specific user if you wanted a specific user...or will that not work for you? That would launch the webpage to the site specified each time windows starts.

I like to have all of my programs launch when I boot up in the morning, so I wrote a batch file

@ECHO OFF
START C:\INTERNET_EXPLORER\IEXPLORE.EXE
START C:\ACT\ACT.EXE
START C:\JAMESDOCUMENTS\BACOUDALLOZ.XLS
START C:\lotus\approach\approach.exe
START C:\OUTLOOK_EXPRESS\MSIMN.EXE
START WWW.LAUNCHCAST.COM
START C:\mozilla.org\Mozilla\MOZILLA.EXE
ECHO PROGRAMS STARTED
PAUSE

I put that baby in my startup folder and voila!

Just set your home page to whatever website you want, and when your browser opens it will open up to that page.
