  • I have tried with the latest version of my channel (Stable or Edge)
  • I have uploaded Diagnostics
  • Diagnostics ID:

Expected behavior

  • de-select "Start Docker Desktop when you log in"
  • Docker Desktop should not start when I log in

Actual behavior

  • Docker Desktop starts when I log in

Information

  • Windows Version: Win 10 Professional 1803
  • Docker for Windows Version:
    • Version 2.0.0.0-win78 (28905)
    • Channel: stable
    • Build: c404a62

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. install Docker Desktop for Windows
  2. de-select "Start Docker Desktop when you log in"
  3. restart Windows

This also happens between updates: in past installations I was able to permanently de-select "Start Docker Desktop when you log in", but each new update reactivates it. This time it seems impossible to deactivate it permanently.

Same problem after updating from 1.x.
I was able to stop Docker for running automatically by deleting the key in Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

It seems that the culprit is the installation package for Windows.
Please see this forum entry.
The installation packages creates an obsolete "Docker for Windows" value in HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.
This "Docker for Windows" value is no longer controlled by the "Start Docker Desktop when you log in" preference in the Settings panel.
This preference now controls the presence of the "Docker Desktop" registry value under the same key 'HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run'

Can the Docker team please remove this erroneous "Docker for Windows" registry value from the installation package?

I second @reureu's conclusion - "Docker for Windows" reg key is the culprit
Problem still persists in Version 2.0.0.3 (31259) I installed yesterday.

In a clean installation (new machine) Version 2.0.0.3 (31259) was installed an entry in startup (via taskmanger) remains after deselecting the start desktop on log in. If I select it again (after various shutdowns/restarts) a new entry in the startup tab of taskmanager appears.
