Windows Autostart Programs

I have several autostart programs defined on my Shadow (Steam, Discord, Screenshot Tools, Auto Updating tools etc.)

I figured out when starting the Shadow via the Launcher and waiting in the screen till it automatically connects to the shadow, in the most times the programs listed for autostart doesn't launch.

But when starting the Shadow via the Launcher and go back to the Home screen to wait till it says “ready” + waiting like 2-3 minutes before connecting, 90% of my autostart programs are launched.

Is it possible that connecting during windows login while those apps are starting, some Shadow services are interrupting the autostart?

Is there a way to fix this?

You’ll need to give Windows time to start your programs that you’ve set to auto-start. This is why going “back to the Home screen to wait till it says “ready” + waiting like 2-3 minutes before connecting” starts your programs.
