How to make a Windows Store C# app start with Windows

Jul 1 2019 3:39 AM
Hi!
 
I have created a Windows Forms C# app called "Desktop Web Tiles", that creates a panel with four websites that run with Microsoft Edge.
 
(https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/desktop-web-tiles/9pmp8f1nqcj7?activetab=pivot:overviewtab).
 
I converted the app with Desktop Bridge for Windows Store and published it. The only problem is I cannot make the Windows Store app run at startup. Looking around I found this link:
 
https://blogs.windows.com/windowsdeveloper/2017/08/01/configure-app-start-log/#V6oroyVxClAEehF6.97
 
It says to  use the "windows.startupTask" Extension in my app manifest to make the app autostartup. The problem is I don't know much about handling the app manifest and I am stuck. It is essential for my app to start with windows, because it is fundamental for its usage. I would appreciate your help.
