I was reading some of the options for the
shutdown command in windows, when I stumbled across the following option descriptions:
/r Full shutdown and restart the computer. /g Full shutdown and restart the computer. After the system is rebooted, restart any registered applications.
I thought that when Windows restarts, every application would be closed on the shutdown procedure, and then started again on system boot.
Some possible considerations that come to mind for me are:
- Carryover from previous versions of Windows that performed some restart trickery
- Temporarily override the default behavior of system configuration
Is it any of these? None of these?
