Feature Request: Option to start automatically on system startup

Please add an option to start the program automatically when the computer starts up.

@bizzaro

You can use the OS to do this rather than Joplin.

Joplin

In Joplin go to Tools>Options>Application and tick

"Start application minimised in the tray"

Windows

Place a shortcut to the Joplin.exe file in your “Startup folder”

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
where <username> is your account username.

Joplin will then start on login and will start minimised.

Linux

In some variants (such as Mint) search for a utility called Startup Applications

Press the plus + sign to add a new one.

Call it Joplin or whatever you want.

For the “command” browse to where the Joplin.Appimage file is on your system and select the appimage file.

Save

Joplin will then start on login and will start minimised.

Thinking about it. If you have used the install / upgrade script on Linux you may find that Joplin already appears in the list of programs in Startup Applications and just needs selecting/toggling on…
