    Hey,

    I am relatively new to Mac OS X. I use a lot of network shares and am currently using Login Items to auto mount them on startup.

    It works great, but the only thing is that on start up, it actually opens a window per share on the desktop which is slightly annoying when you have to close 15 x windows in order to see your desktop.

    Does anyone know if there is a was to suppress this? so that the drives are mapped but the widow isnt opened on start up.

    cheers.

    Tick the box next to the login item to hide it at login. :)

    Hi,

    I forgot to mention that the Hide tick box is already ticked. It still opens the window regardless.

    Bizarre. What item exactly have you added to Login Items? By the way, COMMAND-OPTION-W should close all open windows of any selected app.

    Okay, maybe post a screenshot of your Login Items to see what exactly is being opened. :)

    in my experience a mounted share doesnt hide as a login item. either does a terminal window.

    Thanks everyone. So is there any other way to achieve network mounts on startup without having pop-up windows?
