How to add programs to start when booting?
 
I am new to mac. I somewhere found that I need to create an "alias" and move the alias to System->Startup Items, to enable any program to run when the machine boots up. I tried this with two programs but they didnt startup.

Can someone help?

Go to your system preferences and select the accounts, click on your account and then click on the startup items tab... ad your program there and then your done

Those directions are for Mac OS 9 only. The directions posted above are correct for Mac OS X.

Leave the programs open when you put your Mac to sleep :-) Ready to go when you are.

Yeah thanks for the advice. Although ical alarm was already set to start up this will come in handy for other stuff.

This doesn't seem to work on OSx for parentally controlled accounts. Anyone know how to make a kids program launch automatically when my son logs into his account on our new iMac? Thanks.
