OneDrive AutoStarts Word

I have Office 365 Home Premium plan and when I restart my computer Word 2016 auto starts twice. The only thing I have running on startup is:
Windows Defender
Greenshots (screen capture program)
and OneDrive

I think this has to do with OneDrive, when I go to task manager it does not show Word on the list.

i have noticed that the latest version of Windows 10 (version 1709) will sometimes open programs that were still open when i restart - most often, google chrome will start up automatically...

Try shutting down all occurrences of Word, then restart again. Does Word start up?
Paul QuintanaOwnerAuthor Commented:
It does on startup. I disabled one-drive from auto start it Word still launches.

Thank you. I followed an article for this. Open CMD - shutdown /r /t 0

I guess Microsoft Word 2016 does not completely close when you hit the X button on the top right. If I never open it during a session it never autostarts. If I open it and then close it and then restart it will still autostart even with hitting the close button.

before shutting down or rebooting, check in your system tray to see if Word is present...
