 List of Applications loaded on login Mac OS X

2. Select Users & Groups
System Preferences Users and Group

3. Goto Login Items tab

    Here you will be able to see the list of all the applications that are opened automatically on your log in. If the Hide filed corresponding to the app is checkbox, it means that the application will be loaded at startup as well as opened.
