How to Disable DropSend Direct on Computer Startup (Windows and Mac)

If you use DropSend Direct every day to send a lot of files, it’s really convenient to have the program launch on system startup. But some users prefer to not have a lot of software start on system boot. This is usually a good idea if you don’t use DropSend direct every day or if your computer is slow on startup. By default DropSend Direct does not launch on Windows or Mac boot. But if yours does, there are three ways for you to easily change that.

Via DropSend Direct Preferences

The easiest way to prevent DropSend Direct from loading on system startup is through the program’s settings:

  1. Open DropSend Direct and click on File (Windows) or right-click on the small DropSend icon at the top right (Mac)
  2. Click on Preferences
  3. In the new window that appears, go to the General tab and uncheck the Launch at system startup checkbox

Via MSCONFIG (Windows)

If you are a Windows user  and like to manage all your startup items from one place, then you can use MSCONFIG to control what programs start when you switch on your computer. Here is how:

  1. Click on Start and type msconfig in the Search box
  2. When the utility opens, go to the Startup tab and uncheck DropSend Direct’s entry
  3. Click Apply, then click OK
  4. Reboot your PC

Via System Preferences (Mac)

Mac users can manage their login items from System Preferences:
  1. Go to System Preferences and then navigate to Users & Groups
  2. Click on your username and then go to the Login Items tab
  3. Find DropSend Direct, highlight it and click on the minus button (-)
Now DropSend Direct won’t load on system startup. If ever you want to change the program’s settings, simply go to its preferences and re-enable it.
