OS X Tiger / Leopard: Automatically Start Apps at Login

Do you always want chat or mail to start when you boot up or log on? Here is how you can make apps automatically start when you login.

If I am online, I want chat up and running. Here is how to setup a program to automatically launch when you boot up or log into your system.

1. Click System Preferences
2. Click Accounts
3. Select your account
4. Select the Login Items tab
5. Click + and browse to the app you want to start up when you do.

Alternatively, you can just run the app. Then click and hold the app’s icon in the dock, and select Open at Login.
