  2. Task Manager-Startup

    Here are three methods to invoke a task:

    1. By placing a program or a shortcut into this folder:

      c:\Users\Michael\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
    2. By specifying it in this registry location: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    3. By creating a scheduled task that gets triggered at startup or at logon time.

    Task Manager Startup Items missing

    I just tested this on Windows 10 version 1903 and it still applies. If you delete either your Startup folder or the All Users startup folder, then all items disappear from Task Manager Startup tab (even if all items normally there are from the registry).

    As soon as you recreate even an empty user startup folder or empty all users startup folder (both must be present), then all items reappear on the Task Manager Startup tab.

    I was helped by a Windows 8 answer from six years ago:
