I'm also so annoyed by Evernote opening automatically despite having that option UNchecked in both settings and the task bar icon, that I've been considering deleting it! I've tried to do the procedure above but I see no Login Items list. Also I don't see "Login Items" but "Login Options." Is it the same thing? There's absolutely nothing listed under it anyway. I did follow Settings> Users & Groups but see nothing about Evernote. Can you help?
