    The problem still exists. Here is what just happened when I signed in, not from boot:
    That is not an issue, that's how Windows 10 works. If you exit your user account using options in Start Menu without signing out (lock the PC, switch user, sleep), the Start Menu is open; Windows exits your account before the menu has been closed.

    When you return to your user account (unlock the PC, switch user back to your account, wake up the PC), your desktop is shown as you left it, Start Menu opened.

    Is there a way to close the menu before it logs me off? (I only have one account)

    No, as far as I know. The thing is the exit is so fast, immediate, that the Start Menu has no time to close. System processes your exit command (lock, sleep) immediately when you have selected it and suspends your user account, therefore the Start Menu remains open.

    Please forgive me saying this but I cannot see how this could be an issue? Wake up the PC and continue working, the Start Menu closes when there's activity.

    I just wanted to see if this was a bug. In Win 8.1, you could choose to see the desktop or start screen after signing in. I thought this was related and inquired about it here.

    Never thought to ask if you were using sleep, hibernate if this is a cause.
