Some Mac programs give you an easy way to make them start when you login. You just right-click on the program in the Dock ...
and select Open at Login. With other programs however, you don't have that option. When that's the case there's still a way to have the program you want automatically start. Here's how.

Hi! This is Mike Callahan, Doctor File finder. And today, I’m going to show how to make a program start when your Mac starts.
Many programs, you can make them start by clicking and saying open it, log in, but some programs don’t do that. So we’ll double click on finder, go over here, click on applications. Now, we’re going to go open the system preferences and you’ll see I’ll open that application there. Double click on accounts, so as the user, click on log in items. Now the item that you want to start, you just click it, drag it and drop it in here. And then, you can check it, close all of that. And now when you start your Mac, that program will automatically start. That’s all there is to it.
