Can't get WhatApp desktop to launch on startup

Hello, After I reinstalled WhatsApp on Windows 10, I couldn't find a way to create a shortcut to put in the Startup folder. The only way I could find whatsapp.exe was by right-clicking on it in the Task Manager. I was able to make a shortcut to it, but the .exe was in a protected folder and executing it returned "Windows cannot access..."
