Simple NFC automation on windows startup

So I’ve seen GoToTags mentioned a couple times already but something that bothered me the first time I used it is that if you use the “Auto Start On System Startup” available in APP in the software the console and app window pop up every time I turn on my pc.
So I thought I would share my quick fix :

  • Download/install GoToTags

  • Disable the “Auto Start On System Startup” in the APP menu.

  • Create a shortcut of “C:\Program Files (x86)\GoToTags\GoToTags Windows App\GoToTags.WindowsApp.exe”

  • Put the shortcut in “C:\Users\Az\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”

  • In the shortcut’s properties set “Run :” to “Minimized”.

That’s it, now GoToTags will launch discreetly on startup (takes a couple seconds) and you can scan a tag at any time to open links and such, like you would on android…
