Mac Tips – Automatically Starting an Application at Login

This one took a little digging through options to figure out how to do, unlike most anything else that one needs to do on Apple’s Mac OS X. You may find at some point in time that you want a particular application or utility (such as a utility that displays info. in the menubar) to be launched every time that you login to your Mac. Instead of running that application manually every time you login, go into System Preferences, then Accounts, and select your username from the list on the left. Click on “Login Items” on the right. Click the plus, “+”, symbol at the bottom of the list and simply select the application you want to run every time you login. Exit System Preferences, logout, and login back in. Now the application you selected should automatically start!
