Hey. Ive been using my mac for a few months now and just wondered if there was a way you can alter what programs automatically run at startup. I'd really like to set one of my programs to autorun on login. Windows had msconfig, and so just wondered if there is something similar is OS X...

thanks.

If you want to setup applications to run when you login, go into accounts preferences. You should be able to add and remove login items there.
