I don't use facetime. I'd like to disable it so it doesn't automatically start following system startup. Is there a way to do this? (MacBook Pro, High Sierra)

    Look in: System Preferences > Users & Groups > (select you) > Login Items. If Facetime is shown in the list of login items, remove it by unlocking the pane if necessary, selecting Facetime in the login list, then pressing the "-" button below the list. – David Nov 20 '17 at 16:22

Navigate to: System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Login Items.

On this screen you can choose which programs will open automatically upon startup. You can remove FaceTime from this list to disable it opening on startup.

You can also add any programs you would actually like to start when you boot up.

Click the lock, Facetime, and then the minus symbol.

    Mine is not in the list and it's still starting. And it's not checked as Open at Login – Sridhar Sarnobat Sep 1 '18 at 4:32
