Knowledgebase: Password Depot
Password Depot starts automatically, although the option "Start program with Windows" is deactivated.

If you want Password Depot to start with Windows, you set this in the program options (Options/General/Start the program with Windows). This leads to the fact that in the registry under

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

the entry "Password Depot" exists.

If you don't find this entry in the registry and Password Depot still starts with Windows, then this is due to the Creator Update of Windows.

We cannot circumvent this behavior of Windows at the moment and offer a workaround because this is not allowed at the moment.

Please read the corresponding statement from Microsoft:

"This is actually a change in the core functionality of Windows in this development cycle.

Old behavior:
- When you shut down your PC, all apps are closed

- After reboot/restart, you have to re-open any app you'd like to use

New behavior:

- When shutting down your PC, any open apps are "bookmarked" (for lack of a better word)

- After reboot/restart, these apps will re-open automatically

If you want to start with no apps open (other than those set to auto-start via Task Manager/Start), you'll need to ensure all apps are closed before shutting down or restarting the PC. 

Why?

The desire is to create a seamless experience wherein, if you have to reboot a PC, you can pick back up quickly from where you left off and resume being productive.  This has far-ranging impacts across the OS (in a good way)."
