One cool feature that has been in the macOS for a while is the ability to automatically launch Apps when you boot into your machine. It is a real convenience which enables you to hit the ground running after startup. This is fairly common Mac technology, but I just wanted to review it here.
The primary place to set up Apps that launch when you start your Mac is in the Users & Groups System Preference Pane.
On the next screen, click on “Login Items”.
You can add or remove login items in the next window.
You can scroll through the list of “Login Items”. This is where you add an item by clicking on the “Plus” symbol, navigating to the App and adding it. You can also check the box and “Hide” an App. The App will bootup automatically, but it will be hidden on the Desktop.
If you wish to remove an App, just select it and click on the “Minus” symbol at the bottom of the list.
There is another way to add an App to Login Items. Just right-click on an App in the Dock and select “Options” and “Open at Login”.
This places the App in the Automatic Login Items list.
I just added the LastPass App to the Login Items list.
This is not exactly an earth-shattering bit of information. But, it is good to be reminded of some helpful features in the macOS. By the way, the more stuff you have in the Automatically Login Items area, the slower your Mac will boot up. It pays to review this list at times and try to only keep what you really need in it.
