If you're using cmd you can also set AutoRun commands like:

	$ cat HKCU-SW-MS-Command_Processor-AutoRun-chcp_65001.reg
	Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

	[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor]
	"AutoRun"="@chcp 65001 >nul"

- append " && command..." to add more commands to AutoRun; these must use only
the common base characters.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
