Default XBMC start with Windows?

I went through all the setting and google and couldn't find out how to get XBMC to start on startup with Windows 7. Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks.

Why not just make an XBMC shortcut and add it to the Startup folder?

That's normally how I'd do it in XP, but I didn't think that it could be done that way in Vista/7.

Yeah it's really the easiest way to do it. Shouldn't be a problem.

Just in case anyone else is wondering, to put things in the start up menu in Windows 7 go to the cmd prompt and type shell:startup.
