This short blog shows you how to stop auto reopen of programs after restart in Windows 10.
You realize Windows 10 1709 will reopen all the applications when restart. Windows claims this is a better feature. Personally I do not really like it.
The worst part is there no option to set whether I want to reopen my application after restart or not.
What if I want a clean restart then how can I achieve that?
I checked internet and found this blog:
But the Alt-F4 it does not work for me. Somehow the shutdown.exe /r /t 0 to restart works, reopen.
I found this from Microsoft site.
Again, I have no way to find “Use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart”.
I was trying to set the DisableAutomaticRestartSignOn but it did not work for me as well.
In short the solution for me is:
shutdown.exe /r /t 0
Microsoft should have a clear way to set this option. Not everyone like to reopen their programs after shutdown or restart.
