    This is what I can't fathom, settings are identical on all machines, but behaviour is different. I really can't identify why some machines preload the desktop and others don't.

    Maybe @Brink @Brink has an idea?
    I noticed that it's usually computers with only one account that preloads.

    Strangely, in my case the computers with multiple accounts are preloading and the ones with single accounts are not.

    Have found a Start menu fault on one of the systems that doesn't preload, so am investigating that at the moment as a possible issue.

    It collaborates to what I wrote on post#17
    - links on public\desktop are preloaded and those on the user desktop not.

    Everything in the Startup Programs is included for me. I don't have any desktop icons.

    @kado897 I can confirm one of my issues was with Openshell
    support for hydrated reboot aka `shutdown -g` . Issue #37 . coddec/Classic-Shell . GitHub
    support for `shutdown -g` aka `shutdown with hydration` . Issue #152 . Open-Shell/Open-Shell-Menu . GitHub
    How to reopen programs after manual restart and signout, like Windows Update does? : Windows10
    windows 10 - How to change default shutdown option in Classic Shell? - Super User
    Changing default shutdown to shutdown /sg (Shutdown and on the next boot restart any registered applications) fixes the issue.

    There were a few other issues but managed to resolve them so will close the thread and mark as solved.

    Thank you for your help and to everybody that responded.

    You can work around the Classic/Open shell issue by editing the shutdown command and replacing it with %SystemRoot%\System32\shutdown.exe /sg /t 0

    I've only done it on the top level so if I want a hard shutdown I can use the menu entry.
