    Anyway to stop programs opening on Windows 10 restart?


    hi folks,

    Sometimes I probably reatart windows 10 without shutting down some programs like outlook, or my browser, only to find that when I restart these programs also autmatically run again.

    Is there a way to stop this?

    Many thanks,
    joe

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Programs stopping and restarting

    Hello William,

    I regret the inconvenience caused to you. I will be glad to assist you with your issue.

    Let's try the below steps and check if it helps to resolve the issue:

    Step 1: I would suggest you to run System Maintenance Troubleshooter
    and check if it helps:

    • Press Windows + X key. 
    • Select Control panel.
    • In the search box, type Troubleshooter and then click
      Troubleshooting.
    • Under System and Security,
    • Click on System Maintenance and Click on Next button.

    Step 2: Run SFC Scan.

    What is SFC (System File Checker)?

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the steps given in the below article to perform SFC scan:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833?ppud=4&wa=wsignin1.0

    Note: Steps applies to Windows 10 as well.

    Step 3: If the issue persists, I suggest you
    to boot into safe mode and check if the issue persists.

    Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The word
    Safe Mode appears in the corners of your monitor to identify which monitors mode you are using.

    To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:

    • Press Windows Key + R.
    • Run will open, type
      msconfig and hit the Enter key.
    • A system configuration box will pop up.
    • Click on Boot Tab.
    • Select or click the check box Safe mode with networking.
    • Click on Apply and ok.
    • You will then see a restart button. Click it to restart your computer.
    Once you are in safe mode, check if you are facing the issue.

    Once you completed the steps above follow the below steps on how to go back to normal mode:

    • Press Windows Key + R.
    • Run will open, type
      msconfig and hit the Enter key.
    • A system configuration box will pop up.
    • Click on Boot Tab.
    • If you see safe mode box has a check mark in it,
      uncheck the safe mode box and hit apply or
      ok
      .
    • You will then see a restart button. Click it to restart your computer.
    • When your computer comes back up, sign in and you will now be in "normal mode".
    Let us know the status of the issue. For further assistance feel free to post your queries in Microsoft forums. We will be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
