I've configured Mail and Steam to open at elementary startup, the only problem is that they open as regular apps(popup window), I would like to configure they to open in "background mode", so no popup should open at startp. It's possible to do that ?

startup applications


I'm not sure what you intend, but if you want Mail to run in the background without opening the window, just set Preferences > Always watch for new mail. And this way you can remove Mail from startup applications.

  • Yes, it works for Mail, I will keep looking for a solution for steam. Thanks. – Mateus Vahl Dec 18 '16 at 2:59
