Run at Startup doesn't work when the account on my computer has a space in it

Run at Startup doesn't work when the account on my computer has a space in it

Someone made the little mistake of not accounting for directory paths with spaces when making the registry value for running at startup. I put a space in my computer's account name (format of firstname[space]lastname), so since installing Spotify, instead of it running at login, it will create and open a file titled with my first name.

 

To fix this, I opened regedit, navigated to \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, and modified the Spotify entry to add quotes around the directory path.
