    Sorry if this has been covered before, but I've got a question that's bugging me...

    I launch Thunderbird and ical at every start up, but I don't like minimizing them...doesn't take much effort but I don't like doing regardless.

    Is it possible to have apps launched at startup to be minimized (for lack of a better word) into the dock at startup, or is this a job for Automator? If so, how would I go about using that?

    Thanks for any info.

    System Preferences, Accounts, Login Items, click Hide.

    Should do it for most apps ( doesn't work for me still for some reason).
