Add/Edit Startup Applications in Ubuntu Linux

Hey friends,

I recently switched over to Ubuntu and I must say it feels a better and crunchier experience as compared to my alternate previous OS, the Windows. That said, switching over to Ubuntu brought its own set of problems and Ububtu 18.10 (Bionic Beaver) is not as stable as 17.04 was for me. 

So today I am going to share a very easy way to edit the startup applications on your Ubuntu machine. This approach should work for previous versions as well.

Now just like Windows, there are some startup applications in Linux which can be added/deleted as per your own convenience. Without further ado, let me show you how:

  • The most easy way is to first press Alt + F2 keys together.

  • Then write gnome-session-properties and press Enter. You will be presented with the following screen.

  • Now here you can add, edit or delete the startup applications as per your own convenience.
So now you know how to edit your startup applications in Ubuntu Linux. Please feel free to comment if you face any problem, or in any other linux distro and I'll try my best to help you out.
