Hi All.
The Internet Explorer 11 automatically opens automatically when Windows 10 starts. I checked Task Manager and Settings. In both I didn't see Internet Explorer in the list. Just starting happening a few days ago. How to stop running IE automatically.

    Check the Run Registry keys to see if something put IE to run each time:

    Might also try from a clean boot.

    What is the current version of your Windows 10 device?

    You could try the method below:
    Settings > Accounts > Sign-In Options
    Scroll down to Privacy on the right and then set the following to Off

    If that doesn't work, change the registry below:
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v DisableAutomaticRestartSignOn /t reg_dword /d 1 /f

    Note: Make sure that you back up the registry you modify it.

    Hope above information can help you.
