Auto Open Apps on the Mac

Learn how to automatically open your apps on your Mac

Have you ever wanted to automatically open an app when you start your Mac? In the past this was, and still can be, done through the Mac’s System Preferences. But there is an easier way – through the Dock. All you need to do is make sure the app you want to automatically open is in the Dock, the easiest way to do this is to just open it. From there you hold down the ‘control’ key and click on the app’s icon in the Dock. You’ll see Options. Select this and the select Open at Login. You’ll also see an option to keep the app in the Dock. If you no longer need the app to open automatically, you can deselect it as well. Hope this tip helps!
