Having WMC autostart with Windows 10

Sorry of this has already been covered somewhere but, I couldn’t find anything from searching.
As you all no doubt know the autostart function is not working with WMC in Win 10 out of the gate. Does anyone know of a way or work around to get WMC to start up automatically with Win 10?

Thanks

Do you mean from a cold boot?

Try going into the Task Scheduler and create a new task. For the trigger, select "on system restart" from the list. Make sure you deselect "stop the program if it runs longer than xx days".

Yes from a cold boot. I tried your suggestion. Still no joy. Worth a pop though
