 +You can still use the batch file if you want to.
  
 Easiest would be to make a batchfile in pinupsystem like this: Note in latest version there is already a batch file called: RunWindowsStartup.bat that you just place a short-cut to in startup… if not there, you can make your own. Easiest would be to make a batchfile in pinupsystem like this: Note in latest version there is already a batch file called: RunWindowsStartup.bat that you just place a short-cut to in startup… if not there, you can make your own.

 +====== Auto-Play Intro Media when Popper Starts Up. ======
 +
 +Nice feature that can play on all/any pupdisplays during startup. Press any flipper/key to stop startup videos and go to home list.
 +
 +Easy Startup support!!! Go to PlayList manager in Setup. Make a playlist called exactly ‘StartUP’ (off root, no quotes). Then go to Media Manager/Playlist select Startup Playlist and add/modify all media for Startup Playlist. Will auto-start on that playlist…on button press it will show home-list… (startup folder is never visible in FE).
 +
 +Starting in v1.4.3 of Popper you can use new custom option: IntroSkipSeconds=x when using intro intro video, after x seconds will goto home menu and stop intro videos.
