The following LIST formats are available:

ut.

 will be done.


C:\>

E.g., if I only want a brief listing, i.e, just the Command, User, and Caption values, I can use wmic startup list brief. If I just want the "caption", I can use wmic startup list instance as shown below:

C:\>wmic startup list instance
Caption
Akamai NetSession Interface
SpybotPostWindows10UpgradeReInstall
Intuit Data Protect
QuickBooks Update Agent
QuickBooks_Standard_21
IgfxTray
HotKeysCmds
Persistence

AdAwareTray


C:\>

If I don't want to use any of the predefined list formats like brief, full, instance, etc., I can use wmic startup get followed by the values I'm interested in. E.g., if I wanted the caption and command values, I could use the command shown below:

C:\>wmic startup get caption, command
Caption                              Command
Akamai NetSession Interface          "C:\Users\Pamela\AppData\Local\Akamai\netsession_win.exe"
SpybotPostWindows10UpgradeReInstall  "C:\Program Files\Common Files\AV\Spybot - Search and Destroy\Test.exe"
Intuit Data Protect                  C:\PROGRA~2\COMMON~1\Intuit\DATAPR~1\INTUIT~1.EXE /Startup
QuickBooks Update Agent              C:\PROGRA~2\COMMON~1\Intuit\QUICKB~1\QBUpdate\qbupdate.exe
QuickBooks_Standard_21               C:\PROGRA~2\Intuit\QUICKB~1\QBW32.EXE -silent
