Quick OS X Question

  1. Apr 22, 2006 #1
    In OS X, how do you set up user preferances so that when you log in, various programs automatically run every time. I started doing my programming on macs recently for work, and I often need to open 6-8 terminals, and then guide them to different directories and open different files every time I log on, which wastes a lot of time, how do I automate this?

    to automate that you should use an automator script. then you can have that automator script launched at log-in by going into system prefs->users->startup tab.
