    Disable Autolaunch Feature


    Here is the batch script I made to disable the Autolaunch feature

    Code:
    @echo off
    :: Disable Windows 10 Autolaunch Feature
    :: Author: Hendrik Vermaak, 03 February 2018
    :: Check for administrative permissions 
    >nul 2>&1 "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\cacls.exe" "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\config\system" 
    :: If error flag set, we do not have admin. 
    if '%errorlevel%' NEQ '0' ( 
    echo Requesting administrative privileges... 
    goto UACPrompt 
    ) else ( goto gotAdmin ) 
    :UACPrompt 
    echo Set UAC = CreateObject^("Shell.Application"^) > "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" 
    echo UAC.ShellExecute "cmd.exe", "/C """"%~f0""""", , "runas", 1 >> "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" 
    cscript "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" 
    exit /B 
    :gotAdmin 
    if exist "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" ( del "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" ) 
    pushd "%CD%" 
    CD /D "%~dp0" 
    :: BatchGotAdmin (Run as Admin code ends)
    :: Disable AutoLaunch Feature
    echo.
    for /F "tokens=* skip=1" %%n in ('wmic useraccount where "name='%username%'" get sid ^| findstr "."') do (set SID=%%n)
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\UserARSO\%SID%" /v OptOut /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
    echo.
    echo Autolaunch feature disabled.
    echo.
    echo.
    echo Please press any key to exit...
    pause >nul

    It sort of does for me.

    It still reopens all my multiple File Explorer windows but other programs don't reopen with the setting turned off.

    A partial fix/workaround it seems.

    I think that has nothing to do with "Autolaunch", should be another problem or configuration on your system, in my case, no file explorer window is opened when restarting, before installing the CU with the fix, only programs or apps like Chrome, Word or Excel started automatically, in addition, Jason Howard doesn't mention file explorer windows...only apps:

    Yes, 1803 should fix this annoyance, 2 more months and this topic will be closed/solved.

    Well, as the OP I declared this thread Solved once we had a thorough understanding of what was going on - that this was a deliberate (but completely undocumented) feature introduced in the FCU.

    As for 'Fixed', we don't have to wait for 1803. The fix was introduced in 1709 os build 16299.214, it seems that all 1803 will add to that is more clarity in the wording of that toggle switch.

    Yo are right, my apps were still autostarting in 214, but it seems, that something has switched that option ON.

    What we all have to remember is that this is the General Support forum so for the vast majority of users, reading this thread, the 1803 release will be the first to correct this issue - most people do not run insider builds

    Edit

    I would not expect a regular user seeing the issue happen on their system to look at the corrective action and see it as the answer to their issue

    this from 16299.214 the latest Non Insider Build which may actually do what is required but is not exactly obvious
