    What is G app only seen at Windows 10 shutdown?


    This mysterious G app is running and temporarily preventing Shutdown. Two instances usually are running. Do you wish to shutdown anyways = Yes allows shutdown.


    It only appears on one of two PCs running Windows 10 Pro 1903 10.18362.145.


    Is this Google Drive running as a shadow program? Google Drive is installed on my Android device on the same local network and I am usually signed onto the same google account for gmail etc.


    Repeating Shutdown without logging onto any browser leads to no G app appearing.


    TO DO:

    Rebooting and logging in at google in browser then Shutdown: G app appears: Y/N


    Installing Google Drive finally then Shutdown: G app appears: Y/N

    :)

    Program "G" delays shutdown/restart Windows 10

    Sometimes when I restart or shutdown my Windows 10 PC with all current updates, the process waits for an app identified only as "G" to close.

    What is "G?"

    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
