    User window opens on start up ... want to stop it
    Hey everyone ... for some reason, just recently, my main user window, with aps, docs, music, etc. opens on startup. I have no idea why this has all of a sudden decided to start, but I'd like to figure out how to stop it.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance ... I'm stumped!

    you mean a finder window opens AFTER you log in? If that's the case, make sure you close all finder windows BEFORE you log out. I think finder remembers which windows you last had open, and keeps them open next time you log in. Just close them all and log out.

    Also, is there anything unusual in your Login Items under Accounts in System Preferences? I doubt this has anything to do with it, but there's a possibility, I guess.

    To me though, it just sounds like you're not closing finder windows before logging out. Try closing them all first, then log in again and see if it's still happening.
