  1. Won’t shut down because app not closing


    So this started like a week ago and I have not installed anything except safe things like games, school documents and stuff but recently every time I go to shut down my computer, it says “can’t shut down because an app is open” and it goes away after like 1 or 2 seconds so I could never figure out what that was, today however I found that the app started with N. not sure what this means but I think the second letter was p. Not sure tho, my only startup programs are malware bytes, riot vanguard, Microsoft teams, lively wallpaper and nvidia experience. Pls help
