Windows 10 "saved session" after reboot

Dear Experts,

My Windows 10 at home will do a reboot due to Windows Update automatically.

Usually everything that is not saved is usually gone or in recovery.

But now when I relogin, the session issomehow "saved".

Applications left opened remained open even my unsaved notepad too.

May I know what feature is this so that I can learn more about it?

Your settings is here: Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options > Privacy -> Use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart.

For previous versions of Windows 10: Settings  > Update & security  > Window Update  > Advanced options -> Use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update.

To avoid random reboots, set Active Hours properly.

Also starting with V1709 and continuing with V1803 due out now, some applications that were running will start up again. Then if the data was saved (like Outlook) it comes back with the same data. I see this on my Insider machine.

I agree with the above about setting active hours and do that myself. I also close applications at the end of a work day so that any restart outside of Active Hours does not cause issues with my applications and content.

Better I be in control rather than Windows.
