macOS Sierra: If you think you have incompatible login items

If you think you have incompatible login items

Login items are apps that open automatically when you start up or log in to your Mac. Occasionally, a login item may cause a blank blue screen at startup or other problems.

Important: To print these instructions, click the Share button in the Help window, then choose Print.

Test your login items

  1. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Users & Groups.

  2. Click your account name below Current User, then click Login Items at the top of the window.

    Make a list of the login items—you’ll need to remember them later.

  3. Select all of the login items, then click the Remove button .

  4. Choose Apple menu > Restart.

  5. If this solves the problem, open Users & Groups preferences again, add the login items one at a time, and restart your Mac after adding each one.

    When the problem occurs again, follow the steps above to remove only the last login item you added.
