Startup File Examples

These examples will give you an idea of what you can expect in your startup files. Please keep in mind that these are some basic examples of startup files. Your actual startup files could vary quite a bit, due to the thousands of possible computer configurations available on the market today.

Example #1
A system with Windows 3.x or Dos 6.x
Example #2
Preinstalled Windows 95
Example #3
A system upgraded to Windows 95
Example #4
A system with Quarter-deck (QEMM) installed
Example #5
Some Packard Bell systems
Example #6
Some IBM Personal Computers
