How to simultaneously launch several apps?

I typically use several app's as soon as I restart my computer. Apart from selecting "Reopen windows when logging back in," is there a way to simultaneously launch several apps (i.e., a regular group of apps)? Is there some way to integrate this into LaunchPad?

There is, yes. You need to go to System Preferences > Users and Groups > Login Items.

Then you need to click on the "+" and you can then navigate to whatever apps you want to add.

I used to do that but found that there were times I didn't want the apps to auto launch such as rebooting during troubleshooting. I created an Automator workflow with several launch steps each launching a different app. When save as an application it could be launched with a quick double click.which apps are you launching?
