How temporarily disable startup applications per a particular session at login in Ubuntu/Gnome? Looking for the feature similar to Windows login when Shift key pressed until desktop starts.

  • does this help? – 24601 Nov 23 '20 at 17:44
  • Thanks User24601 but I'm fully aware on how to manage startup applications. Actually, I interested in the way to disable all startups once for a particular session (once at login). I prefer to leave all startup configuration untouched for further logins/sessions. – Sergey Sergeyev Nov 23 '20 at 18:38
  • so you mean creating a keyboard shortcut which if pressed at startup then all startup applications will be disabled temporally and if not then start as usual. – preIdiot Nov 24 '20 at 2:07
  • @preIdiot Yes, exactly. – Sergey Sergeyev Nov 24 '20 at 6:34
  • yeah, that will be a cool feature. But I don't think it is available right now – preIdiot Nov 24 '20 at 13:06
