Northern Softworks today announced the release of Login Items Engine 1.0, the company’s new utility to simplify the launching of items at startup or login. It does this by creating a Login Items folder in the users home directory, which functions much like the startup items folder in Classic — users simply have to drag documents, applications, alias files, etc. in and out of the folder as desired to have them launch at startup. Login Items Engine is distributed as freeware.
