I have a program called size up which organizes the windows of the mac. I wish to have it on as soon as I turn the computer on.

How do I do it?

Welcome to Mac-Forums

Start the application, then go to System Preferences->Accounts->Login Items and then click on the checkmark next to the application to have it start up with each boot..

Not at Mac right now, so can't confirm my recollection...
Can't you choose "Open at Login" from the Dock when the app is running?

Yes. That should work also. I think you have to right-click to get that option.

OR your can just go to System Preferences->Accounts->Login Items and then click on the '+' at any time for things you want to add or '-' for programs you want to remove from the list (that is already checked). I don't know how true this is for any OS lower or higher than Snow Leopard though.
