Autoloading is done using an init.m file located in $PreferencesDirectory/AddOns/Autoload/Kernel/init.m or similar mechanisms like $PreferencesDirectory/AddOns/Autoload/<myApp>/Kernel/init.m The "Untitled1" notebook is, as far as I understand, a hard-coded feature, so cannot be suppressed. jmt On Thu, 20 Apr 2000, James Fuite and Tania Nordli wrote: > Dear Advanced Mathematica Users, > > I have a particular notebook that I would like Mathematica to open > during startup. > In Mathematica 3.0 on MacOS 8.1, one can take the following actions in > the front end: File | Notebooks (where recently used notebooks are > found) | modify this menu | (select a particular notebook name from the > list then press) Edit | then there is a checkbox that simply allows > Mathematica to open the indicated notebook during future program start > ups.
