When I do a start or a restart in Win 10 I get a "file manager" screen Solved

    When I do a start or a restart in Win 10 I get a "file manager" screen

    As the title says, when I reboot or restart (usually with the restart button due to freezes) I go through the log in screens, finally to land on my desktop with my icons, then the "file manager" for my back up drive pops up.

    I have Win10 installed over Windows 7 as an upgrade.

    It's not a big thing, but it doesn't belong there.

    Attached is a screenshot of my desktop after reboot and no other actions taken.Click image for larger version.

    CTRL-ALT-DEL -> Task Manager -> Startup Tab. What do you have listed there?

    A couple of things come to mind.

    Click on start icon, type Autoplay, select the top result for AutoPlay Settings. Do you have a removable drive connected, and is autoplay set to open file manager upon connection of removable drives?

    Do you have a RamDisk set up with Disk Master? It could also be AutoPlay open file manager when the RamDisk is set up.

    The seems to maybe have done it. I'll do a few more restarts and mark it as solved.

    Thanks for that!
