Inexperienced Mac User Question About Which Apps Start First

macOS and Mac Apps

Hi. I installed Spotify for Mac. It looks like it is now starting when I log onto my Mac. How can I control whether othat happens?

I believe that the Spotify application has a toggle in its preferences to control whether it loads at start (I don't currently have it installed, so cannot check).

If not, check in System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items

From that screen you have some control over which apps load at start.

I don't use spotify, but there should be a preference option, accessed by hitting CMD+comma and there should be a start at login or something like it. uncheck the box and it should be good.
