When you shut down Windows 10 by keeping some applications open, without then closing them manually, the operating system can be configured to restart applications the next time you turn on your computer. The opposite approach is also possible: i.e. turn off automatic reopening of applications when windows 10 starts.
Turn apps automatically restart on or off when you start Windows 10
The procedure is slightly different, depending on the version of Windows 10 that is in use on your computer.
First of all, you have to open the Windows 10 settings window. To do this, you can use the keyboard foreshortening, pressing the keys at the same time Windows + I. Then select: Account, Access options.
Now, since the 2004 version of Windows 10, you have to search Restart app. Then, turn the button on or off Automatically save apps that can be restarted upon logout and restart them after logging in.
By activating the option, the programs (only those prepared, for example the mail program or the internet browser) can be left open before turning off the PC. When you turn the computer back on, the applications will restart in the same state in which they were closed.
By turning off the option, when starting Windows 10, the automatic reopening of applications when Windows 10 starts will be disabled and the programs will remain closed.
For earlier versions of Windows 10, the option to select is always located at: Settings, Account, Access options.
In this case, you have to look for the privacy. Then, turn on (or off) the Use my login information to automatically complete my device setup after a reboot or update.
Turn File Explorer on or off automatically reopening when Windows 10 starts
Not all apps are set up to automatically save your work when you shut down Windows 10, and then reopen when your computer starts up.
For example, for restore File Explorer windows when starting Windows 10, another procedure must be followed.
You must first open the File Explorer. Then go to the menu Viewbutton Options. The window opens Folder options, where you can go on Visualization, and then search for Restore open folders on login.
By putting the check mark on Restore open folders on login, the File Explorer will reload when Windows starts, to the last folder used before shutting down the system. Alternatively, if you uncheck, the File Explorer will remain closed when you turn on your computer.
