Use Run or RunOnce registry keys to make a program run when a user logs on. The Run key makes the program run every time the user logs on, while the RunOnce key makes the program run one time, and then the key is deleted. These keys can be set for the user or the machine. The Windows registry includes the following four Run and RunOnce keys: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/setupapi/run-and-runonce-registry-keys
