    Windows 10 remembering last session, or not fully shutting down.


    Hello, community.

    I would like to ask if there was a recently update that makes Windows 10 remembers your last session and open almost anything that you left opened after hitting the shutdown button. The issue, if it's one, is that a few days ago my computer started whenever i log-in, to open the windows and programs that i left open.

    First, i thought it could be the fast startup, then i disabled. Next, i thought the computer was hibernating instead of shutting down, then i disabled as well. Next, browsing across the internet i came up with re-installing and updating the Intel Management Engine Device, didn't work.

    My computer is running the High Performance energy mode, all hybernate/sleep settings are set to never or off. (My windows is in my native language Portuguese, Desligado means Off and Nunca means Never).

    File explorer option to restore previous folder at logon is also disabled.

    The computer turns off, i checked inside and everything stops working, yesterday i even took it out of the power plug to make sure it was really turned off, and when i turned on today, it was here, my last session, lol.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Thanks.

    UPDATE: For the most elegant solution go to THIS POST or straight to THIS TUTORIAL



    This is a known issue/feature for latest Windows 10.

    I think we have/had a tutorial for this but I can't find it now, so this is the solution for now:

    Every time you shut down your computer do the following:

    A. For full shutdown:
    1. Press: WIN + R
    2. Type:
      Code:
      shutdown /s /t 0
    3. Press Enter


    B. For a full reboot:
    1. Press: WIN + R
    2. Type:
      Code:
      shutdown /r /t 0
    3. Press Enter


    You can also put those commands in Command Line scripts:
    First make sure you can see file extension (if you need help with that, feel free to ask)

    Making script for Shutdown:
    1. On your desktop right click and select "New"-->"Text Document"
    2. Give it the name shutdown.cmd (make sure it is not named shutdown.cmd.txt)
    3. Right click on the file and select "Edit" (Notepad should open)
    4. Paste following command in to Notepad:
      Code:
      shutdown /s /t 0
    5. Save the file by pressing CTRL + S and exit Notepad


    Making script for reboot:
    1. On your desktop right click and select "New"-->"Text Document"
    2. Give it the name reboot.cmd (make sure it is not named reboot.cmd.txt)
    3. Right click on the file and select "Edit" (Notepad should open)
    4. Paste following command in to Notepad:
      Code:
      shutdown /r /t 0
    5. Save the file by pressing CTRL + S and exit Notepad


    Try out the scripts. In order for the scripts to execute, you must right click on them and select "Run As Administrator", or the scripts won't do anything. Press Yes on the UAC prompt.

    Voila!! No open windows from previous session should reappear anymore.

    Update: Those scripts could be coded better. They are currently in a very crude state, just to keep things simple.

    This new feature is discussed in on a restart Fall Creators Update reopens apps from before - TenForums [I found page 9 to be the most useful page but there are interesting ditties throughout the discussion]

    Yes. This is a new 'feature' that was quietly introduced in the Fall Creators Update (1709).

    It appears that for the Fall Creators Update Microsoft have chosen to boot this way when using Shut down or Restart from the Start Menu.

    Workarounds have been found, Alt-F4 on the desktop still shuts down the old way. Shortcuts using the shutdown command can also be used. My preferred method is the shortcuts, putting them in a folder means I can have a toolbar on my taskbar for quick access.

    This was a widely unwelcome 'feature', and from Insider build 17040 Microsoft have added a way to turn it off. This will not make its way into the public version until the next Features Update (version 1803?) due out in April.


    Build 17040:

    Thanks @Bree

    I missed the point where it says Build 17040+ :)


    Update: Disabling the autologin in setting on build 16299.172 does not automatically launch any apps after reboot. I was wrong, Wordpad did relaunch on reboot.

    That's understandable, many Insiders miss that point too :)

    Actually, now I fully understand how it works I've found this feature useful at times - particularly when investigating for that thread. I'd have IE open at a page in that thread, test something (like which apps can reopen on a restart) then post the results in the IE page that reopened.

    Not all apps can be reopened. For example, Wordpad, IE, Chrome and Office will reopen, Notepad, Edge and Firefox won't. Only apps that are coded to register for a restart can be reopened.

    You had my hopes up there for a while, but testing confirms nothing has changed in 16299.192.
