How can I stop my Apple Macintosh computer from opening two versions of indesign simultaneously?

 

I often see in my Dock that both the 2020 and 2021 versions of Indesign are open simultaneoulsy.

 

I don't want the older (2020) version to open. 

 

In the Dock, when I left click on the Indesign 2020 icon and scroll to > Options, the fly-out panel shows "Open at Login" is checked (√).  

 

Every time when I move my cursor over "Open at Login" to try to get rid of the checkmark, and then go through the routine again, "Open at Login" the checkmark is still there.

 

I find this occurs whether or not one or both versions of Indesign are open when I try to uncheck "Open at Login" in the Dock.

Thanks, Simon and Willi!

 

Simon, I tried your suggested procedures (to change the system preferences).  I think that has solved my problem!
