How do I stop applications from automatically opening when I start up my computer?

    • Launch System Preferences and click on the “General” icon
    • At the bottom of the “Number of recent items” list, uncheck the checkbox next to “Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps”'


    also, in system preferences>users and groups, make sure anything under the Login items tab is checked.
