Win10 Chrome Session on Startup

I have a shortcut to the project on the desktop and I would like it to start in chrome automatically when the computer starts up.

I've added the shortcut to the startup folder and it launches ok, but takes a while for the gateway to make all the tag connections.

Is there a nice way to make a "startup page" that shows some sort of loading icon until the gateway connections are ready? It's not a very good user experience to sit there staring at a bunch of errors, waiting for everything to connect. Or, would it be better to somehow delay the opening of the Chrome session?
