    You know when you go to System Prefrences>Accounts>(choose account)>Start Up items....There are check boxes to where you can hide a start up item. What does that mean? Is it different than completely taken the item/app off the start up list?


    Thanks :)

    Yes it is different, when you choose for an application to be hidden, basically it means that all its windows will be invisible (they appear again when/if the application is activated). This is the same thing as hiding an application normally, from its Dock menu or from its application menu (command-H).
