Chrome opens automatically after start/rebooting on Win10

My only issue is Chrome starts by itself every time I start the computer up , or reboot .  Where are the start up menu ( items ) in 10 to disable this ?

1. Go to Start > Run (type “Run” after pressing start, or just without pressing on Start press Windows logo button on the keyboard plus R button).

2. Type “regedit” > press OK > press Yes

3. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

4. In my case there was odd registry entry:

Name = <my PC user name> (e.g. johnb)

Data = “C:\explorer.exe” (I don’t remember exactly the link, and likely you will have another link)

This registry entry told Windows to run link on startup.

I’ve deleted the entry, but if you don’t want to do it, you can just modify the entry by deleting the “”.

I assume, in such case Windows will open My Computer on startup.
