    Hi!

    Today I reset PRAM and SMC. After that I noticed that the 3rd party programs that I previously had to run on login (Flux, Google Drive, etc) didn't run at login. I checked my user settings in Preferences and saw that 3rd party apps where gone from the login items list. I opened ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginitems.plist and all of the 3rd party apps were listed there. So I moved the file to another location from there and added new logins in Preferences but the com.apple.loginitems.plist wasn't re-created.
    Then I created a new user and logged in with that user, added some login items and checked for the com.apple.loginitems.plist file which was missing.
    So did Apple change something related to login items?

    Any idea what happened? Isn't login items not stored in com.apple.loginitems.plist file anymore?

    Found a similar issue: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/high-sierra-deleted-login-items-list.2072980/

    Running on macOS 10.13.

    Thanks!

    Yup - System Preferences is hosed - Display Scaling, Sound and Login Items loose settings on Sleep and Restart.

    Yeah, same here.

    Today I have to enter my iCloud password to login, after last monday it was my user account's password.

    After sleep mode and screen lock, it is my iCloud password.

    Quality control... ?

    I reported this to Apple and they said that it's intentional that there's no plist file anymore.
