    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

    File Explorer Windows 10 - How do you stop it from opening at startup

    That's not Windows 10. Mine opens that stupid window at the startup, and checking the startup folder, there is NO item there saying Files Explorer. That was no help at all.

    File Explorer Windows 10 - How do you stop it from opening at startup

    Hi,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    I would suggest you to open the task manager and disable the file explorer from there. Follow the below steps:

    1. Open the Task Manager.

    2. Go to startup tab.

    3. See if Files Explorer is listed there. If yes, right click and
    disable
    it.

    Now check for the issue.

    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.
