Panther: How do I get startup items to work?

Discussion in 'Apple' started by Charles Dilks, Oct 26, 2003.

  1. In 10.2.8 I had IE, MTNW, Mail and Stickies in my launcher items. I
    believe I just dragged the apps in there.

    In Panther I hear that they go in Startup Items. That looked like a
    normal folder so I was hesitant to drop them in there. I made aliases of
    them and put them in the SI folder just like one did in OS 9.
    They didn't launch.
    Help please.

  2. You do it the same way in Panther as in Jaguar. Open the Users
    preference panel, click on the Startup Items tab. Drag the items into
    the list window. Alternatively, click on the "+" button and navigate to
    the item, and click the Add button.

  3. Use the Accounts preference panel. This now contains what used to be the
    Login preference panel.
