How to open Start up folder in windows 8?.

When it comes to windows 8 Microsoft has tried to make the user interface more friendly for average users rather than advance users. One thing that they have done to prove that is removing Start up shortcut from the start up menu. 

Note : Windows operating system tries to load the application of the residing shortcuts of Startup folder after OS is finished loading.

In windows 8 you can open both Personal & Public Start up folders using following run commands. (Hold win key and press R to open run console)

To open personal Start up folder : 

To open public Start up folder : 
shell:common startup

Note 2 : Above commands can be used in windows 7 as well. 

Hope this helped.
