How to start an application automatically on Mac

Application software which is referred to as an app is a program or group of programs designed for end-users. To find an app folder on your Mac, there are many ways to go about this. One of them is to click on the “Finder” which is usually located in your Dock and then select “Applications” in the left sidebar. Now you can now have access to the application you wish to run, keep in the dock or uninstall (delete). This process is almost similar to stopping (removing) an application from automatically starting up in macOS, how to stop TeamViewer from starting automatically on Mac, how to enable or disable startup programs, and how to view or change programs that run on startup.

Windows applications are programs written to run under MS operating System is the Windows Application. Examples of applications that run on Windows OS are Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, Remote Desktop Condition, and Snipping Tool, etc. See the following guide on "how to stop Zoom App from launching automatically at startup on Mac".

Launch the system properties as shown below

– Click on Users and Groups
– Click on the Login Items and
– Click on the “+” as shown below

Now select the application you wish to startup automatically.
– Select the application and
– Click on Add

When this is done, to ensure this app is available to start automatically, click on the “Password” tab and back to the “Login Items” tab. Now you should be able to see the application listed in the list as shown below.

That is all that needs to be configured for automatic launch of an application.
