Autostarter

November 18, 2022:
We are introducing the new app Autostarter:

Do you use macOS 13 Ventura and you miss the feature to automatically launch applications with hidden windows when you log in? Do you like the hidden option to be as reliable as it has been in the good old Mac OS X 10.6? In this case, Autostarter will be the right app for you. It brings back the "autostart hidden" feature and is as easy to use as the Login Items in System Settings, but offers more features, e.g. exporting items to other users or to other Macs.

Autostarter is available via Apple in the Mac App Store.
