Adding Login Items to your User Account    
You can customize your User account to automatically launch any application upon logging into your computer! This is really useful for applications that you open on a daily basis, such as Mail and Safari, and this automated process makes it one step easier. To add any application to auto-launch upon login first go to your System Preferences. Next click on Accounts. Now select your user account and click on Login Items. Now click on the plus button. Go to your applications folder and select the application that you want to auto-launch and click the Add button. You will see that the application was added. Another way to add applications to auto-launch is to just drag them into the window. Close the System Preferences and you’re done! Now the next time you login, your computer will open up any applications you added automatically! If you chance your mind and want to delete the apps from your login items, simply go back to the login items, select the application that you want to remove and click on the minus button.
