    I have my computer set up to auto open safari and mail when I login. Is there a keystoke to disable this one time when login?

    Thanks

    I profess to know nothing...................

    Right (ctrl) - click the dock icons and disable Open at Login.

    This KB talks about doing a one-time disable, but it's not loading for me right now...

    Right (ctrl)????? Don't quite understand that but wouldn't I have to turn them back on when I reboot? If so that's not what I want to do.

    I was able to access website and yes this sounds more like it although was looking for something less repetitive. Thanks for the help!!

    Yes... :eek: ...for that refer to the tip from mkrishnan, with the shift key. (Simply put: If you use auto-login do not press the shift key before the progress bar is complete. If you press it too early you enter safe mode... ;))
