OS X :: Dock Items And Login Items Reappearing Like Duplicate?

Jul 4, 2010

Any time I try to remove an icon from the dock or an item from the login items and then logout/restart they come right back. It's like OS X is remembering my last login and then just duplicating it. I can't get it to keep it the settings I give it. Google and a quick search of the forums gave me nothing.

ITunes :: Find And Remove Duplicate Items In Library

May 18, 2012

I use Google's Google Play and I made the mistake of Downloading my Library from the Google play Music Manager in my (early 2011) MacBook Pro's System Preferences after I already had my music library in iTunes so now I have a duplicate of every single song and not sure how to delete them. I tried using the the advice offered on here where I sort all music based on DATE but every song has the same date and about the same time so that won't work for me. Other then downloading a paid program I'm not sure what my options here are. That being said, let me know if anyone know what options other then paying for a program to do this for me or worse... having me click on every single duplicate song individually until I finish?

OS X :: Removing Items In Startup Items Folder

Mar 7, 2009

My own account login items list in my systems preferences window is limited to one item- an istat menus helper app. But my mac hd/library/StartupItems folder contains two items that I don't recognize and don't think have much to do with starting up the computer. One is a Qmaster folder and another is named RDUSB00A3Startup. Each folder contains a few items, including a unix executable file and a plist file. My mac hd/system/library/StartupItems folder is empty. Can anyone please advise on whether the items in my mac hd/library/StartupItems folder are necessary and if deleting them could affect my computer? I don't use Qmaster and have no idea what the RDUSB00A3Startup folder is for.

OS X :: Things Disappearing From Login Items?

Sep 9, 2010

Has anyone ever had startup programs disappear from the login items preference pane for no apparent reason after reboot? I've had this happen twice over the past year, once in Leopard and once in Snow Leopard. You add some startup apps to the login items in pref pane and reboot and some items are gone and no longer listed in there.

OS X :: Why Bunch Of Login Items Listed

Apr 23, 2009

I just noticed (I never really looked before) a bunch of login items listed that mostly I don't know their purpose. The logitech control center for my bluetooth mouse is there. That makes sense as to connect my mouse at startup. But I have something called 'Airport Base Station Agent' and iTunesHelper' and a couple of other do-dads for a couple of other small apps (Rogue Amoeba Schedule Help, for ex.) that I have no idea why they should be 'starting' when I log in, nor are they something I even notice when I login in. Are they some kind of background process goings on I don't know of? If I toss this stuff, would it hurt anything? For example, is that Airport agent thing an important background utility that's needed for my computer to connect to its wireless on startup or what?

OS X :: Possible To Change Colors Of Dock Items

Mar 28, 2008

What would be a good way, if possible, to change the colors and such of the icons in my dock? I wanna make them all black and white, with some splashes of red in there. Also, any other parts of my OS that I could customize to the same color scheme would be nice. I have Leopard, 10.5.2, if you need that info.

OS X :: Disable Startup Items For A One-time Login?

Jan 13, 2009

I'm sure many of you know how using bootcamp can cause slow startups when switching OS's because it has no cache to use. For example I'll be in Windows and then need to swap back over to Leopard to get something done, but it takes forever. The worst part is the list of login items... I've tried using scripts to separate them by 10 seconds or so, but nothing really made it faster. I was wondering if it was possible to login but cancel or disable the startup items for that login that one time... Sometimes I just need to login to grab something off the internet or something quick, but it takes me awhile because I have to wait for everything to load.

Do I make any sense? :P

And no, safe startup mode does not count. I don't want to disable the entire system... just the login items.

Software :: Login Items - Crash When Removing

Dec 30, 2009

I've got some login items that who-knows-where-I-got'em, but I do and I can't get rid of them.

Their item and kind are \\\ and unknown. When I mouse over them to see their resident folder, I get a yellow sticky of \\ ad nauseum.

And when I try to remove them, El-KaBong. A soft restart back to the login window.

Tried just an A&I of the system, hoping it would fix the problem, but no such luck.

Other than that, it runs just fine. Is this an issue?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Login Items Will Not Load

Jun 8, 2012

Intermittent "forgetting" of most LogIn items.As I recall, this problem began in the later iterations of Snow Leopard and I posted somewhere in here about it, but I can't find that earlier discussion now.The problem is this: occasionally most login items will not load. I check System Preferences > Accounts > Login items and find that most of the items that were there are no longer listed. When it starts happening, it happens more often than occasionally. After a period of time, the problem goes away for a somewhat longer period of time.I Option-Go in the Finder to Library > Preferences and (1) delete the PLIST files for apple.com.loginitems and for apple.com.systempreferences then (2) open System Preferences > Accounts > Login items and re-populate the list then (3) restart.I have tried a shortcut of saving copies of the newly-written PLISTs and replacing the removed PLISTs with them before re-starting, but "something" else in the system has apparently stored the information and the same absences show up, so I have to go through the one-by-one repopulating of the list.

Does anyone have a solution beyond the steps I have listed here? Sometimes I want to get to work but have to go through that increasingly infuriating process of re-setting login items.I'm thinking there must be some other file that makes the "complete" PLISTs that I have saved and re-copied back into the Preferences folder match the incorrect list that was created on the incorrect startup. It is comparable to saving a revised word processor file but, when re-opened, it is the pre-revised version.

Applications :: Can't Remove Items From Dock?

Oct 19, 2006

For some reason since installing a new OS I can't remove programs from my Dock anymore? I used to be able to just right click on the program and select remove from dock but everything program I now right click on says "show in finder" with no other options to delete it. I've only just recently installed OS X 10.3.9 (I can't remember what I used to have on here as this was a new OS CD).

MacBook Pro :: Keep Items From Filing Behind The Dock

Mar 11, 2012

They have terrible file management skills and the short version is that they tend to use the desktop as a documens folder. I'm working on this but in the mean time there is a problem where when they save a file from e-mail or what have you it goes to the desktop. Which has items in the first 8 positions. The ninth position is behind the dock and rather then moving up to the next column it goes right behind the dock.

Intel Mac :: Login Items Still Show Up Even Though I Have Them Unchecked

Feb 3, 2012

I have unchecked every app in the Login Items menu in System Pref. Even deleted them out of the menu. Safari, iTunes, Mail, and a Finder folder show up automatically when I restart or login to my iMac. I have read some posts on this and I'm also aware that you can right click on the app in the dock and make sure it is unchecked to open at login. This problem seems to have started after I removed programs I did not want to start up in the Login Item menu in System Preferences.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Hide Items When Login Is Not Working

Mar 13, 2012

In Snow Leaopard if I check the box against apps to Hide them whem logging in it worked fine... I login and the apps are running but not open (dot underneath). After upgrading to Lion this setting is ignored. Everytime I restart all the apps I chose to Hide open their windows and I have to manually click the red cross to hide them.  

For info, I have my computer do a scheduled restart every morning before I get to work. So I assume the checkbox to reopen windows when you login back in is checked as no one is there to uncheck it. BUT this should not be related, as the apps are marked to be hidden.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Unable To Remove Login Items

May 26, 2012

Unable to remove login items (Revert after reboot) iOX10.5 iMac

I am having issues and permanent encounter in having my removed login items reappearing after reboot. I have very MANY of the same programs in 'open at Login accounts' eg: Messenger,Safari,Skype,Evernote,Dropbox,antivirus, but they are listed dozens of times. in this 'open at login' area.

Here's the steps I have taken:

1) Open Applications, Account Preferences, cluck my administrator acc, select program to delete, click on - and wait.

2) Remove some login items (with or without unlocking the lock, doesn't seem make a difference, tried both)

3) Login items are now fewer

4) Reboot

5) voila, the removed login items are still loaded and displayed in login item tab.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Login Items Randomly Disappearing

Jun 19, 2012

I've exercised MANY different outlets for solving this problem. I am stumped beyond belief why this keeps happening. Frankly I'm also a little pissd as well becasue I have to recreate my login items through system preferences almost daily as a result of this "bug". Here's the 411. I have about 10 items I want to start upon login. Those apps are things like Safari, 1Password, Osfoora etc. I created the login items through system preferences and used the "+" sign to add each one. Upon booting my Mac back up the next day they're gone. With the exception of Dropbox which usually always remains there. I have NO idea why this keeps happening. I've tried the ways other people on this community have suggested such as trashing the preference .plist file etc. I personally have right clicked on that preference file and changed it to read only, locked the file and nothing works.

OS X :: Leopard Dock/Can't Right Click Or Remove Items

Dec 30, 2007

I don't know what happened but for some reason, I can no longer right click or remove any items from my Dock

I have Onyx installed which has an option to lock the dock, however that is off. I am certain that my dock isn't locked because I am able to move items around the dock, and also add new items

I don't know when this started but it may have been because I was changing the dock's appearance by replacing some of the pictures in the system files (frontline.png, separator.png etc.)

I've restarted my Macbook a couple of times and have also done killall Dock in the terminal but everytime, I still have these two problems

Also, when booting up my Macbook now, the dock takes much longer to load. Before, it would usually be one of the quicker things to bootup but now it is always the last (before Quicksilver was usually the last program to load for me)

I also used a Terminal command to add a "Recent Applications" stack by following instructions posted here:

I've since removed this Stack but the problem still occurs. Don't know whether or not this had an impact or not

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Specify The Login Items For The Guest Account On Mac?

I would like to be able to configure what applications start when it's logged on using the guest account.  For normal accounts you would use the login items option in Users and Groups but this option is not available for the Guest user.

OS X :: Dock Items Disappear When Drag And Drop Desired Application

Oct 5, 2009

Has anybody had any experience with Dock items disappearing? I simply drag and drop the desired application I was to remain in the Dock, and within 10 seconds it just disappears from the Dock! I haven't un-installed the application. I did have Dock items selected to Sync in MobileMe, but I disabled that as a test. I've also tried right-clicking the application while it's open, and selecting the 'Keep in Dock' option, but same result. After about 10 seconds of closing the app, it disappears from the Dock. I've run Repair Disk Permissions, no effect. I found a similar thread on this forum, but it suggested basically wiping the Mac and starting again, which I don't really find as a solution!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: ITunesHelper Now Has A Yellow Warning Triangle In Login Items

Apr 13, 2012

I have been having intermittent trouble with my USB ports on my Early 2011 MBP 13" i7. One port was dead. This started when I upgraded to Lion from Snow Leopard. In order to see if the problem was with the installation of Lion, I cloned my drive with Lion 10.7.3 on it and then reinstalled Snow Leopard OS from the disks that came with the computer. The problem disappeared. I restored the clone of my drive with Lion on it and the problem did not occur again... right away. Now after a day of using the computer with the restored clone with Lion on it, the problem cropped up again, but not as bad as it was before. The port stopped working, but when I unplugged the device and plugged it in again, the port worked.

I am wondering if this could be a driver issue. I just happened to notice that iTunesHelper has a Yellow Warning triangle in the Login Items window in the Accounts System preferences. And Kind is listed as Unknown. In another MBP 13" I use at work, that has Lion 10.7.3 on it, iTunesHelper has Kind listed as Application with no yellow warning triangle.Is this something to be concerned about?

MacBook Pro :: Login Start-up Items Don't Start Up

May 6, 2012

My computer is a MacBook Pro running Mac OS X Version 10.7.3, 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 with 4GB memory. Start-up has become somewhat erratic. Consistently, if I close the lid on the computer it won't restart when I reopen it. I'll have to hold the power button down for about 15 seconds, let up and then press it again. Sometimes restarting after a shutdown the computer will go through the long start-up I associate with a crash shutdown. Sometimes login start-up items don't start up. Sometimes I have to click somewhere on the screen to make the menu bar at the top of the screen visible. Overall, unexpected things keep happening. Although I don't think it probably relates, Chrome is my primary browser.

OS X :: Deleted To Do Items ?

I just discovered that I had deleted a bunch of "To Do" items by accident. I cannot find where they go. I cannot believe that there is no "Trash" type place for them and they are gone forever.

If that his how the "To Do" list works, I will have to find a replacement. Hard to believe that a single keystroke is so irreversible. I found myself somehow on the wrong row and deleted several items this way. Cannot find them anywhere.
