Curing a slow Mac startup

Have you noticed that after you have used your Mac for a while, starting it up and getting to a fully ready responsive working environment can take a while? I have seen on my client’s Macs that one of the culprits often are applications that (inadvertently) have been marked to auto-start at log-in.

Stopping that is easy: In the dock, right-click (hold down CTRL while clicking on a one-button mouse or trackpad) on the application’s icon in the Dock (see image), then from the appearing menu, go into ‘Options’ and deselect ‘Open at Login’. Done!
