  1. Determine the reason for Windows 10 reboot


    Hi Community,


    while my PC was on standby in the late evening I heard from the living room that it is doing a reboot.


    It certainly might have been outside defined active hours for Windows updates. I am just wondering if I can determine if the reboot was initiated by Windows updates or a technical problem.
    What I am after: in former times with Windows 7 after reboot there was a info next to the clock telling "your PC was restarted for updates" similar.


    System: PC desktop

    Windows: Version 1909


    Thanks and all the best,

    Birgit

    :)

    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
