Hi, I'm running Desktop Manager on my G4 - is there a way of getting it to start when I turn my Mac on? I did notice a "Startup Items" folder under System|Library but I don't seem able to add an alias for DM to it. Steve

If you open up System Preferences> Accounts> Login Items you can click the + at the bottom of the list to add it, or if it's in the dock, ctrl+click and select 'open at login'.
