How to Disable Automatic Restart of Apps After Sign-In On Windows 10

If you have been using Windows 10 for a while, you might know that the operating system automatically reopens the apps running before the log-out or restart. This is indeed a useful feature because you don’t need to manually relaunch the application you were working on upon every restart.

On the downside, it drastically impacts the startup time of the operating system. Starting with Windows 10 build 17040, Microsoft has introduced a separate option to prevent the operating system from relaunching apps. So, if you feel that Windows 10 takes lots of time to startup, it’s best to disable the apps’ automatic restart.
