I have a few programs like Mail or MiddleClick (App that lets me use a middle click by placing three fingers on my Magic Mouse) that I would like to start as soon as I log into my Mac, but not open up.

Anyway to do this?

If you go to System Preferences -> Accounts -> Your account, you can go to the login items section and set an item to launch, but hide it's windows until it becomes the active application.

I think this is the second or third Mac related question you have given me answer for!

I just got a Mac a little while ago, and I'm still learning. xD

Haha, yeah Mac related stuff is what I answer the most. Also, welcome to the Mac, I hope it's been a good experience so far. :)

It's been amazing. Usually the things I have trouble doing, is because I'm used to the Windows way (Which is using looking through the confusing control panel) and when I find out how to do it the Mac way, I feel dumb, because it was so simple. xD
