easy way to auto-start Nordvpn at startup


There are probably a thousand answers to this question and I will search the forum. I'll ask anyway. I just installed Nord, usually the very first thing I get going. I'm trying to get used to the terminal commands. What I am looking for is how to have Nord to start either on its own, or a quick GUI

NordVPN is a VPN service provider to hide your IP address and encrypt your data...

When I used NordVPN, I got it to start up at boot with something like this (I can't find where I wrote it down)
Code:
systemctl --enable nordvpnd now
And after I'd installed nordvpn, I discovered there was now a man page on that box, where you can probably find this.

Yeah, assuming the service name is nordvpn, you could start it at boot with
Code:
sudo systemctl enable nordvpn
and start it now with
Code:
sudo systemctl start nordvpn
.

NOTE:
It has to be nordvpnd - the "d" on the end presumably means "daemon"

And the custom man page needs to be emphasized.

After reading some of the replies, Michaelk and Redd9 were right on. I found it rather easily online and it works perfectly. After using Windows for such a long time and having things "just happen" automatically, Linux takes more time and understanding. But I like it a lot so far. Thank you all for the replies
