Hi!  

Many times when I close my PWAs and shut down my laptop, after startup the PWAs again get launched without clicking on them. Ideally, this shouldn't happen.

Is anyone else also facing the same issue?

Or if anyone has a solution then plz do share it with me.

Thanks

@Ekansh0202 thanks for sharing this. Can you tell me what you have set on this page? edge://settings/onStartup

 

Also, what version of the browser are you using? 

 

Thanks!

@Ekansh0202 hmm. That's unexpected. What version of Windows and build of Edge are you on?

@johnjansen 

I am on Windows version 1909.

Also, I am facing this issue on edge stable version 83.0.478.44
