File Explorer in Windows 11 introduced tab support, which is one of the most loved features. Surprisingly, the tabs feature broke an existing feature that allows Windows 11 to restore folders opened previously when you log in to the desktop. Microsoft finally fixed issues with the “Restore previous folder windows at logon” setting, and it works again in newer stable builds.

If you don’t understand how this File Explorer works in Windows 11, let’s break it down. Once enabled, the feature restores all your open File Explorer windows when you restart or log into your PC. It doesn’t work when you shut down your PC.

After updating to Windows 11 22H2, many users found themselves in a predicament. The “Restore previous folder windows at logon” stopped working, which forced them to reopen all the File Explorer windows again manually.

A workaround emerged, which required turning off the tabs feature in File Explorer using third-party tools. This worked for some time, but it backfired with the Moment 4 update, which is why it has always been risky to turn off the tabs feature to retain the window restoration feature.
