macrumors newbie

Have a 'Full Screen' App as Your Home Screen

Hey there guys,

Apologies for the vagueness of the title.

Basically, I want to have Wunderlist as my start screen, so when I open the Mac it shows up. This means that I'll always check my To Do List instead of being distracted, then remembering later that I need to check it.

Any tips?

Thanks a lot.

It is easy to have any program run when you start your Mac, using Login Items in system preferences.

Open Preferences > System Preferences

The under System click Users and Groups. Make sure you are selected in the user panel on the left. Click the padlock in the lower left to unlock. Confirm your user ID and Password, then click unlock.

Click the Login Items Tab and then click the + Button.

Navigate to the Applications folder, select Wunderlist, then click Add. Now each time you start your Mac, Wunderlist will automatically run.

If you close Wunderlist while it is running full screen it will reopen in full screen.

I hope that helps.
