    I would like to suggest to have the choice of user defined App autostart on boot up or not.

    Hello,
    what this option will do? Turn Parallels Toolbox autostart at login ON/OFF?

    please let the user decide if and when the program should startup !

    I concur. There's nothing in the installation process that indicates it will become a startup item, AND there's nothing in Preferences to allow ME to control this behavior. Bad, bad software attribute!

    Hi, I just tried steps from this article and it works.
    Could you please try this and let us know how it works.
    It will be great if you can provide us with the screenshots.

    In reply to the above. What Maria says DOES work. The item does get permanently deleted from the login items, if you follow the instructions above. BUT - and this is a BIG BUT - IF you decide to run Parallels Toolbox again - it automatically adds itself to the Startup Items without direct permission - so thereafter, it will be part of your login until you physically remove it from login items again.
    PARALLELS - PLEASE FIX THIS!

    We absolutely need to be able to select Auto Start, i.e. to start up Parallels Toolbox automatically when the machine starts. The default should be that it does NOT autostart. I don't need you or any other 3rd party vendor telling me what gets started on my machine. The fact that there is no option to turn this off is a joke. I expect this in the Windows world, that's why I'm on OSX.

    Before you put that in, you should give us an easy way to uninstall it completely, because that's what I need to do until you get the tool working properly.

    Another vote for this. I would open the Toolbox when I want it.

    I keep doing this manually but running the app re-adds it. I use parallels twice a month and don't want unnecessary apps loaded.

    Hi @danielc9, please remove Parallels Toolbox from the list of login items under System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Login Items and then click on the lock icon on the bottom left of the same screen to change it to locked state. As long as the lock icon in this screen is in locked state, Parallels Toolbox cannot be added as a login item, even by itself.

    "lock" in preferences doesn't do anything useful. Toolbox is still able to add itself to startup items. Thats really annoying user experience.

    Option to disable Toolbox launch on Mac boot was added in Toolbox 2.0 -- check out new Preferences dialog in Toolbox

    Please add a feature to stop Parallels tools being loaded automatically at startup.. I remove it for a reason, yet you keep putting it back. All that's required
    is a simple tickbox to load at startup or not
