I am trying to configure my Windows 10 machine where I want to 'Disable auto reopen my apps after restart'.

I want to turn this off:
Settings > accounts > Sign-in options
Under Privacy Section
Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device and reopen my apps after an update or restart.

Does anyone know how to do this via a simple powershell script.

thanks

Hi there! :)

Not sure why you need a PowerShell script since there is a setting you can turn off? Try the instructions below.

1. Press the Windows start button and search and open "Settings"
2. Go to "Accounts"
3. Go to "Sign-in options"
4. Scroll down to Privacy and Turn off "Use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart".

You may use this registry file as a reference to make your Powershell code.
DisableAutoReopenAppsAfterRestart.reg
