DelayedLauncher Delays The Startup Time Of Login Items

Mac: If your Mac is feeling a bit sluggish on startup, one of the reasons might be because you have too many login items. DelayedLauncher is a tool that allows you to delay and stagger out those items so your Mac starts up faster.

DelayedLauncher is easy to use. Once downloaded, add it to your Login Items (System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items), and delete everything else on the login item list. Then, open up DelayedLauncher and drag the apps you want to open from your Applications folder into DelayedLauncher. From here you can set up delays of up to five minutes to wait for apps to launch when you login. This should speed up your boot time because your computer won’t try to open everything at once. We’ve seen other Mac apps that have done this before, but DelayedLauncher is a bit easier to use and has more options.
