Application Manager: any way to have it start minimized?

    I would add that 100% of the time when I boot up, I will not be using ON1 to start out with.  Although no big whoop, I'd rather not have to bother closing the App Mgr. window before moving on to the morning's online activities.

    The purpose of the Application Manager is to manage any ON1 programs (plural) that you have. if you only have one program and it updates itself anyway, then I don't see a need for it. 

    I don't know why ON1 is recommending it, but you can manage Photo Raw by itself just fine.

    You can remove it from the startup list of programs to be run when you log onto your account.

    For Mac users this means removing its permission to run as a background task. That keeps it from auto launching but still allows it to be run manually.

    I am having the same problem with Application Manager launch at computer startup. I am running a Mac mini M1 macOS Monterey version 12.6. I have not been able to solve the problem. Please help.

    My post immediately above yours explains how to keep it from starting up at power on. In Monterey it will be a bit different. Try Googling how to disable startup items on Monterey.

    I have googled. And found the place where I can disable startup items in Monterey, but there is no ON1 item there to disable.

    Look for permissions to run in the background. Disabled that.

    I have Montery too so I wrote support to see what they suggest.  Here's the answer.

    "Unfortunately on the older macOS there isn't a way to disable auto login/launch of the app manager.
    You'd need to uninstall if you don't want it launching.
     
    You can always download the products you own directly from the ON1 website in your ON1 Account Products page.
     
    Or you can download all our apps from our downloads page without the app manager:"

    They lied to you Karen. Of course you have control over which programs are launched when you start your Mac. Which version of the OS are you running? Did you look at the Startup Items for your user account in System Settings? Find it in there and delete its entry from the list by selecting it and clicking the Minus button and it will not launch at login any more.

    I've looked everywhere Brian and I can't find a solution.  That's why I wrote support.

    It's not in the startup list.  I checked all the Library folders that were listed in the articles I found online.  Some of the folders are in the hidden library and the others are in the Users library folders but there is no trace of an ON1 *.plist file anywhere.  I know it must be there somewhere but I damned if I can find it. I think I will just delete the software.  I can easily reinstall it when I need it again.  I am looking to upgrade my Mac so that will solve the problem soon enough for me.

    Which OS version are you running? It isn't in any ON1 preferences or plist files. It is an entry in the OS startup programs list that has to be removed through the OS. I need to know which OS so I can tell you where to go.

    There is always the alternative of deleting it from your system. What doesn't exist cannot be run. 😉

    Brian, sorry I forgot to include the OS.  Monterey 12.7.1

    Go to System Preferences > Users & Groups and select your account name then click on Login Items. You should see it in the list. Select it and delete it. Post a screenshot of the O section of the list please.

    This is what I see for my login items.

    They are doing something tricky then. What do you see under Login Options?

    Karen. I spent many hours trying to find a solution and followed all suggestions and instructions. My conclusion to the problem in Monterey was to uninstall the Application Manager.

    Brian, there is nothing helpful in Login Options.  I think I'll follow Jorn's (sorry don't know how to make the special character in your name:) suggestion and just delete the Application Manager.

    Thanks for the screenshot. It's been a while since I've seen that version and I forget what is where sometimes.

    Two more places to check if you want to keep the program. Take a look at

    • Macintosh HD/Library/LaunchAgents
    • Macintosh HD/Library/LaunchDaemons

    If you see anything with com.onone in its name pull it out and restart your system to see if that clears it up. It will probably have Application Manager in its name as well.
