Note that if you are using Windows Explorer (This PC / My Computer / Computer) to get to the STARTUP folder that the APPDATA folder is “hidden” so you will have to enable hidden files to see it.  If you are typing in the STARTUP folder path at a CMD prompt or in a script, the hidden APPDATA folder will not be an issue.

Also note that shell:startup and shell:common startup are will not open through Cortana search so you must right click on the START button and select RUN.
