    Is it possible to create a link between two programs such that if one of them is open, the other is opened as well?

    Ex: If I open Safari, I would like it to automatically open Mail as well.

    You can setup a macro if you purchase the program "Keyboard maestro".




    It will create a command that is executed by a trigger.

    The command would be to open (in your example) to launch mail.app, and the trigger can be set to the Launch of the Safari.app application.



    This is the only way I can think of doing it, perhaps there are some free Macro apps out there to help you with this. Alternatively, maybe there is an applescript to do it.
