... and I just tried it in the Startup folder and it works fine.

Here is the "Target" of the shortcut:

C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/xlaunch.exe -p /usr/bin -run ***cygwin-path-to***/config.xlaunch

I find the -p makes it easier to write the various files, since it allows cygwin
programs to be found.

The "Start in" is: C:\cygwin\bin

My cygwin installation is in C:\cygwin
