    Hey,

    Was wondering if anyone knows how to get my application to start automatically on startup ... but 'hidden' or minimized on my Mac. It is really irritating to have to hit Alt-H each time I start my machine.

    Any help appreciated.

    If it's pre-OSX, there's a folder called "Startup Folder". I think it's in the system folder. You can make an alias(shortcut for pc users) of the app(highlight the apps main icon, and press command-M), and drag it into the startup folder. Next time you boot up, the app should automatically open for you.
    If you are using OSX, I have no idea................... :)

    It seems to startup ok, but not hidden which is the irritating thing.

    Not sure if this is what you're talking about, but in the upper right corner of the screen, click on "Finder". There you can choose to hide your app. It won't do it automatically though. Hope this helps............
