Start at login not working

Last Updated: Jan 26, 2013 09:18AM CST
If you have ticked the preference for 'Start at login' either in the welcome screen or in the preferences and the app does not start when you login/restart/startup your computer there are a couple of possible solutions.

  • Confirm that the app has not started by opening up Activity Monitor (Cmd + space key to open spotlight, then type in "Activity Monitor").  If Stock + is among the list of running applications it is possible that there is another app's window covering up Stock +.  If it is not covered up by another app it may be possible that there is not enough room in your menubar for the ticker to show.

  • If you have confirmed that the app is not running, then it is likely that the Stock + app has not been indexed by spotlight yet.  This is essential for OS X to launch Stock + at login.  In order to force spotlight to index the app go to System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy.  Drag and drop the Stock + app into the privacy table, then immediately delete it.  This will force spotlight to index the app.
