    In Mountain Lion....

    Whenever I "quit" an application like Microsoft word, is there an option to NOT have it automatically open all documents that were previously open. Closing each windows before quitting the program works, however, I'm finding myself having to force quit alot in mountain lion and re-opening the multiple documents, powerpoints that I had open previously does not help the matter.

    Also, is there an option to NOT open all the processes/application I had open before restarting? I do NOT have any programs checked in Users & Groups> Login Items, however, it seems to open them upon restart.



    Any advice?

    For your first question, go to System Preferences-->General, and check the box that says "Close windows when quitting an application.".

    For your second question, when you select Restart, UNcheck the box that says "Reopen windows when logging back in."
