    Stop having start menu open when I sign in

    Periodically when I sign into my computer the startmenu will be open. I don't like this. I feel like I saw other people discussing this for some site.

    I only ever see this when I switch accounts - sign in to another account without signing out of the first. When I sign out of the second account and sign in again to the first it's exactly where I left it - including having the Start menu open.

    PS: Resuming from Sleep or Hibernate will do it too, that is if you initiated Sleep/Hibernate from Start's power button. I don't, I just close the lid.

    Apparently this only happens if I shut my computer off from the start menu because it had the menu open. I found this on another site.

    oh man... i'm such a dummy... i guess it doesn't do it on startup, but does it on wake up because the start menu is open when i click "sleep" when putting it to sleep. sorry...
    Prevent Start Menu from opening at startup/wake - Windows 10

    So if you lock your computer with the power button or with the kewyboard it doesn't happen, but if you use the start menu then it does happen.
