After shutdown and restart Windows will also restart application from the previous session.
Is there a way to start Windows without these previous applications? I could not find it.

Hi

Something that I've been told and excepted as fact, though I don't really know that it's true is that you actually get a cleaner restart by selecting "Restart" as opposed to shutting your computer off and turning it on again.

I believe that the process does not retain settings and open applications that turning your computer off does.

I've always used Restart when I wanted to clear my computer, maybe I should do some research and see if thats true.

Or maybe someone here knows?

  2. In the left-pane of Power Options window, click the link labelled Choose what the power buttons do to open System Settings window.
  3. Here, click the link named Change settings that are currently available.
