    Apps/File Explorer windows opening on system restarts

    I think it was when the current build of Windows 10 (1709) came out that Microsoft introduced a feature where any windows (even things like Task Manager etc) would re-open when the system was restarted if they were open and running when the system was shut down.

    I wasn't keen on this feature at first but then I started to find it quite useful. However, I am not sure if Microsoft have changed anything in recent cumulative updates or whatever, but this has now not been happening for a month or two. Where is this setting stored? I was wondering if I'd changed something and not known about it.
