    Is there a way to automatically launch programs at startup?

    I'd like to have XMenu, which puts a handy little list of my apps in the top right corner, launch automatically at startup. I know how to do this on a PC (start menu -> run -> "msconfig" -> startup), but I'm not sure how to do it on a Mac. Anyone know how to do it?

    Thanks for any help!

    open system prefs, go to accounts, and from there you can edit the startup items

    or if the app is in your dock, right-click the icon -> open at login
