I usually just hibernate my computer, so I don't know when this actually started: When I turn on or restart my laptop, and windows starts up, it opens a window with the program file "windows" instead of just going to my desktop. Anyone have advice on what caused this and how I can get it back to "normal"?

Before you put it in hibernation, be sure that you are on your desktop with no other apps or windows open... If hibernation is the same as shutdown as to what shows up when you restart...Windows is defaulted to open things as you left them...in case you were in the middle of something when it shut down...it thinks it's doing you a favour :whistling:

See if that works...

That's not it. I know about the hibernating and the windows coming up "as I left them" I actually like that. This problem window only opens after a complete shutdown. Sorry, but thanks for the attempt.
