How-To: Remove Applications from Startup (Mac)

To remove applications that start automatically when you boot up is a simple process on the Mac, however still one that I get asked by friends and family regularly how to control. To manage the applications that launch when you first boot up, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Apple Icon in the top left corner of the screen
  2. Select “System Preferences” from the drop-down menu
  3. Select “Accounts” then click the “Login Items” tab
  4. From here you can now remove or add applications that start automatically when you log in
