Is there a way to start a specific PowerApp at Windows startup?

Yes there is, here is how for the browser…

 

First make a shortcut to your PowerApps site.

Right click on your desktop - New - Shortcut

Paste the link to your site.

 

Now open the start folder in Windows Explorer... navigate here

%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

 

Drag the shortcut you just made into this folder.

 

There are other ways, this works well.

 

Hope this helps.

Sorry, this is not a valid solution for my needs.

I need to launch the app from PowerApps at startup, not the web based version.

Still no solution to start a Powerapp App directly without to open powerapps?

I also needed this solution for a "kiosk PC"

 

Create a shortcut to your desktop or where you want.

The location of the item is:

ms-apps:///providers/Microsoft.PowerApps/apps/YOURAPPLICATIONID

 

And you can copy the application to a startup folder

To access the startup folders you should do the following

1. Press Windows key + R
2. Type shell:common startup (Startup for every user who logs in the machine) or shell:startup (Startup only for the currently logged in user)

3. Press Enter

 

 

If you don't know how to get the application ID go to https://make.powerapps.com/apps

 

Click on the "more button" than Details

There will be a section called "App ID"
