Hi, still unable to get this to happen on any of our 1709 machines and from discussions many more also do not experience it. However others like you are experiencing this. Ms have been equally confused, suspect it will be removed.
What we know from an MS site:
This is actually a change in the core functionality of Windows in this development cycle.
- When you shut down your PC, all apps are closed
- After reboot/restart, you have to re-open any app you'd like to use
- When shutting down your PC, any open apps are "bookmarked" (for lack of a better word)
- After reboot/restart, these apps will re-open automatically
If you want to start with no apps open (other than those set to auto-start via Task Manager/Start), you'll need to ensure all apps are closed before shutting down or restarting the PC.
The desire is to create a seamless experience wherein, if you have to reboot a PC, you can pick back up quickly from where you left off and resume being productive. This has far-ranging impacts across the OS (in a good way).
So far it has been possible to overcome this on effected machines with some registry mod's (as it could not be created by us, we did not write the mod's so I will not post them until I am sure they are safe, and more importantly why this is only effecting some machines and not all). For the moment close all app's before restart. One other issue that concerns us is an errant site (ransomeware, for eg) could these be reopened?
