How to change the startup programs in macOS
Startup programs in macOS, also known as Login Items, are applications that are run every time the user logs in. In the majority of cases this is software that has been installed onto your system. In other cases it can be leftover items that have not been cleanly uninstalled.
We will in this short guide show how to add or remove login items in macOS.
Adding or Removing Login items
Open System Preferences from the Launchpad or the Applications folder.
Click on Users & Groups.
With your Current User selected, click the Login Items tab.
Confirm that the list of login items is what you would expect and either press the plus (+) button to add a new application to the list or the minus (-) button to remove from the list.
Restart your Mac for the changes to take effect.
This guide has shown how to add or remove startup programs in macOS which can be useful if you tend to open the same app every time you login or if you just want to increase your Mac’s startup time by removing stuff that is no longer in use.
