Word/Excel opening on startup, odd? Solved

    Word/Excel opening on startup, odd?


    When I use Word or Excel one day, and when I've finished on my pc for the day and shut down. The next day when I switch the PC on, a blank Word or Excel sheet (whichever I used last the day before) will open on up on my screen on startup without me touching anything. Is this not odd behaviour, or is it from a setting I need to adjust?

    I'm on 10 Pro October update, Office 365 on default settings.

    Hi.
    That's a feature MS enables by default. You can turn it off here:
    Settings>Accounts>Sign-in options>Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device and reopen my apps after an update or restart.

    I think the bigger problem is that office programs are not shutting themselves off properly lately. There’s a few posts about this issue. Try opening something like excel and then closing it. You may see it lingers in task manager as a process. This is why it auto launches sometimes on next boot/log in. That setting will help but it doesn’t address the problem/bug
