    Note Old behavior:
    - When you shut down your PC, all apps are closed
    - After reboot/restart, you have to re-open any app you'd like to use

    New behavior:
    - When shutting down your PC, any open apps are "bookmarked" (for lack of a better word)
    - After reboot/restart, these apps will re-open automatically

    Workaround:
    - Shut down all apps before you shut down or restart the PC.
    OR
    - Shut down from Alt+F4 Shut Down Windows dialog.
    OR

    1. Press the Ctrl+Alt+Delete keys.

    2. Press and hold the Ctrl key, click/tap on the Power button, and release the Ctrl key. (see screenshot below)

  2. Computer restart hangs in Windows 10

    Have tried all of the above and the computer still hangs when restarting. I have installed a fresh copy of windows 10 2 times and works fine. Get all the updates and still works fine. Then all of a sudden hangs on restarting. I can shut down and press power
    and works fine then when I try to restart hangs.

    Have 5 computers with same specifications and the other 4 no problem.

    Have ran C:\Windows\system32> sfc /scannow

    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

    Beginning verification phase of system scan.

    Verification 100% complete.

    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
