How to stop apps from launching automatically upon startup – Mac

I had to ensure skype for Business running on my PC does not start automatically.

Here are the steps to follow:

  • Open System Preferences.
  • Click Users & Groups.
  • Click Login Items.
  • Select the app or apps you do not want to start automatically and
  • Click on the minus “-” symbol to remove the app(s).

Note: You can also configure your apps to launch automatically by clicking on the + button and browsing to the desired app.

When this is done, user log-off of the system is required to ensure the changes are applied.
