Chapter 1. Mac Os X Annoyances > REMOVE AUTO-STARTUP APPLICATIONS

REMOVE AUTO-STARTUP APPLICATIONS

The Annoyance:

Some software installers place on my hard drive an application or utility that launches at startup. I've collected an array of these apps that all start up at the same time, which is a nuisance. I want the applications, but I don't like this auto-launch feature.

The Fix:

You can tell Mac OS X not to launch these startup items using System Preferences. In Panther, go to the Accounts preference pane and click the Startup Items tab. (In Mac OS X 10.2, go to the Login Items pane to see the list of annoying startup applications.) To prevent one of these applications from launching at startup, select the item and hit the Delete key. This does not delete the program; it just deletes its designation as a startup item.
