    IE auotstarting


    Can someone please tell me why, when I start my computer & log into my account, the 1st thing I see is IE11 opened?

    Sometimes it's opened on my set homepage & sometimes on a blank page w/a notice at the bottom asking if I want to reopen my last session. What is going on?

    10 pro x64 has given me more headaches that any other Windows version I have used.
    I have realized that in the same amount of time I've had it installed, I have used 10 less than I have used any other version I've had installed in the past (3.0, 3.1, 95, 98, 98SE, XP, XP Pro x64 & 7 Pro x64).

    Look in Task Manager under the startup tab, delete it if it is there...

    Hey CJW,
    If you're leaving IE open when you shut down the PC, then it could be part of the new app start/restart MS added to FCU. Go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in > Privacy and uncheck “Use my sign info to automatically finish setting up”

    Otherwise ...
    1. Check Task Scheduler to see if there is an entry for IE
    2. Get Autoruns to see if you can find why IE is starting - Autoruns for Windows - Windows Sysinternals | Microsoft Docs

    I make sure to close IE every time I am going to shut down the computer & I do have “Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart” set to OFF.
    IE is also not listed in Task Manager or Autoruns.

    Install or Uninstall Internet Explorer in Windows 10


    By chance, it is not set as default browser ? (Settings/Apps/Default Apps/Browser)

    You can disable by following above tutorial.

    Yes, it could be - but that fix doesn't work in the public version 1709 build 16299. It's already in Insider builds from 17040 on, and promised for the next public release (1803?).

    Build 17040:

    on a restart Fall Creators Update reopens apps from before

    I didn't change ANY settings & as I've stated, IE is not listed in Task Manager>Startup or Autoruns anywhere; but the problem has stopped & IE is no longer open when I startup Windows. Another Microsoft misery ... I mean mystery.

    What version of Windows 10 does Winver say you have? Is it 1709? If so, IE (along with some other apps including Task Manager, Wordpad and Chrome) will reopen at start up if they were left open when you shut down windows. Others, like Edge, Notepad and Firefox will not reopen.

    If you have 1709 you can test this for yourself. It may be that IE doesn't reopen because you are now making sure it's closed before you shut down.

    Bree, I do indeed have version 1709.
    The problem has resolved itself ... somehow & IE is no longer opening on it's own.
