Want to start TCMD v20 with every Windows 10 bootup

I've tried putting a shortcut in the Startup folder in Windows, and I've even thought of looking in the Registry for the entry that starts up applications on login, but I haven't been able to get TCMD to start up at each login to Windows 10. I'm using the April 2018 release of Windows 10, and I have versopm 2-/11/46 x64 of Take Command v20. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance.

"c:\users\username\start menu\programs\startup" (also known as "C:\Users\vefatica\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup") works here (Win7). I've read (Google) that it's the same in Win10. Get there quickly by entering "shell:startup" in the StartButton\Run dialog. There, I have a shortcut with target

[path]\tcc.exe /k [path]\logon.btm

In logon.btm I do a lot of stuff ... I suppose I could start TCMD.

I imagine the shortcut could simply have TCMD as target but I've never tried it.
I just put a shortcut to TCMD there and it worked.

I suppose you could accomplish the same goal with an entry in the registry key:
Make a REG_SZ value there with any name you like and give, as data, the fully-qualified path to TCMD.EXE.
"%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

Just put it into Explorer address bar (no quotes).
