Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and tips on how to get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and more.
Every time I restart my Mac, some apps that I rarely use automatically launch and I have to wait a little longer to start doing whatever I wanted to do.
So I decided to remove these apps from the startup process to speed things up. Here is how you can do it tpp:
- Open System Preferences on your Mac. You can do this via Finder (Cmd + Space) or by clicking on the Apple logo in the menu bar and selecting the System Preferences option.
- Go to Users and Groups> Connection Items.
- You can remove unwanted applications by selecting them and clicking the “-” icon.
- If you want an application to start upon login but not appear on the screen, you can check the Hide box.
After making these changes, the next time you restart your system, these applications will not appear. This means that you can start doing the things you want to do in a shorter time frame.
