WinGet installation doesn't enable auto-startup

Self explanatory.

And if possible, add a setting for it in Settings tab.

The AUTOSTARTUP for the silent installation, "remembers" what you selected during a previous setting.
https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/installing-rainmeter/#Parameters

So to change an installation parameter for winget, you must override the AUTOSTARTUP parameter.
https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/installing-rainmeter/#WinGetInstallation

Something like this:
winget install Rainmeter --override "/S /AUTOSTARTUP=1"

You may have to tell it the installer path...

Or you can just manually run the installer again and select the option you want.

That means if you are installing it for the first time, you can't have autostartup.

Also, how come there isn't a setting for this?
