    Restore previous folder windows at logon not working


    With my previous laptop this setting worked fine. After logon, all open windows explorers that were open at shutdown, were restored.With my new laptop, no explorers are restored, even though the setting is active set in folder options > view > advanced settingsAlso checked in the registry Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\PersistBrowsers = 1Could there be a setting which overrules the restore setting?This is pretty annoying.

    :)

    Previous File Explorer windows are not restored even after turning on the "Restore previous folder windows at logon" feature on a Windows 10 computer

    This happens every time you reboot a Windows 10 computer, both Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise.

    Please try it yourself.

    • Open Folder Options and select the View tab.
    • De-Select/Un-Check "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
    • Select/Check "Restore previous folder windows at logon"
    • Leave the File Explorer window open and reboot the computer
    • The previous open folder window will not be restored after logon
    • Open a File Explore window and open the C:\ root folder or the C:\Windows folder
    • The protected operating system files will once again be hidden
    • Open Folder Options and select the View tab
    • Locate the same values changed previously and look at their current setting.
    • They will have returned back to their default values
      • "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" will be Selected/Checked
      • "Restore previous folder windows at logon" will be De-selected/Un-Checked
    It seems to be a bug in Windows 10 that I would like to report.

    Previous File Explorer windows are not restored even after turning on the "Restore previous folder windows at logon" feature on a Windows 10 computer

    I have tried this on several different Windows 10 computers, but none of them seem to keep the following Folder View Options.

    • Select/Check "Restore previous folder windows at logon"
    • De-Select/Un-Check "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
    I can see option two getting reset since Microsoft assumes I am not smart enough not to delete protected operating system files and gives me a warning when I are de-Select/un-Check the "Hide protected operating system files" option.

    But I have also de-selected/un-checked all of the "Hide..." View options in the File Explorer Folder Options and they used to stick.

    And I like to have the File Explorer folder windows I have open when I reboot, re-open where I left off.
