    I am using splashtop & airvideo and both programs have some pop up during the start up of the machine which I need to click to close them.

    How can I stop them to pop up?

    Usually when you go to the settings or preferences of apps you can uncheck a box so they don't load at startup. I'm sure those apps have something like that but I'm not sure since I don't use them.

    Right click its icon on the dock then Options --> Open at Startup.

    Make sure 'Open at Startup' is unchecked.

    System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items > Check the box to hide it during startup

    That's exactly how you do it. Just a note, you can't hide a Finder window that starts at login (ex. mounting a volume).

    This did not work. I tried both tick & un-tick and the result is the same.

    Please note I want to load the software but I don't want the software to pop up.
