New Utility Organizes Startup Tasks

German utility developer 1-abc.net is shipping a new tool designed to simplify management of Windows startup folder options for end users.

Startup Organizer 1.0 lets users configure startup entries; delete or add entries to be started automatically with the system; and features an undo capability to correct accidental deletions, according to company statements.

The package also lets users schedule tasks that they might want not want to run every time their systems boot up, but instead might want to set to run once per week, per month, or on some other basis.

Oldenburg, Germany-based 1-abc.net specializes in small, useful utilities meant to simplify end users’ lives. (See “Hard Drive Washer Removes Unwanted Files”).

Startup Organizer costs $14.99 and is available for download at www.1-abc.net.
