To make notepad.exe open up everytime you start Windows, do
the following:

Open Windows registry using "regedit" & input "Notepad.exe"
in the "Shell" value of:

"Shell"="explorer.exe" should look like
"Shell"="explorer.exe, notepad.exe"

OR simply, copy paste the following in launch-notepad.reg &
double click it:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"Shell"="explorer.exe, notepad.exe"

Enjoy :)
