Prevent Finder From Opening At Startup

Prevent Finder From Opening At Startup is a question I’ve been getting a lot of lately. Whenever you start your Mac you get greeted with the Mac Finder window. Why does this keep happening? Not everyone wants this to be the first thing they see. Wouldn’t it be nice if Apple gave us an option to turn this off in a more fisher price kind of way? In this post I’m going to explain to you how to Prevent Finder From Opening At Startup. If you still have questions post in the comments below or send us a direct email here. Prevent Finder from opening at startup - Get support (954) 895-2555

  1. Click on the Apple icon in the upper left of the screen.
  2. Click on System Preferences/ Users & Groups/Login Items.
  3. Put a check in the item you do not want to start up.
  4. Click the minus sign.
  5. Restart your computer.

That should do it. From now on you should no longer see Finder pop up on start ups.

Thanks for stopping by!

Editing The Mac Hosts File

The hosts file on Mac or Windows can be used to override the default DNS settings. Editing the Mac hosts file is pretty easy and only takes a few minutes. To make changes to your Hosts file make sure you have the Administrator’s password handy. In this video I will show you how to edit the Mac host File in Finder.

Why make changes to your hosts file?

Network Testing: If you’re developing a network, you can reroute the real domain name to the development site to see how real users experience it. This will not affect other users accessing the real site.

Block Malicious Sites: Apart from the risk of viruses and malware, undetected add-ons can also find their way into your system and begin slowing things down. Although it’s always worth investing in pop-up ad blockers, editing the hosts file prevents known malicious sites from being accessed. If a link or pop-up attempts to enter the site, your OS simply re-routes it and takes you to a safer page.

Increased Speed: As we said earlier, finding a website via the DNS is like flicking through the yellow pages for the correct address. With the hosts file being localized to your Mac, this could potentially speed up your browsing by omitting the middle man.

Improved Productivity: Maybe you or your team are getting distracted with social media sites or video streaming. Blocking access to time-wasting sites is a good way of keeping focused on the job at hand.
