    I also have automatic login set to off. In fact, other than for testing that feature, I've never turned it on. What it does s essentially let a user log into the Mac while bypassing the login screen going straight to the desktop. . That's convenient but it means that anyone who gets hold of the machine and reboots will be logged into whatever user account you set to auto login with the same rights they would have if they would have they entered the password..

    If someone wants to use auto login I suggest that they use a standard account for that and not auto login to an admin account. When you auto login to an admin account you are still challenged for a password on most tasks.

    Is this your Macbook Pro listed in your specs? I ask as I was curious as to how you are shutting down. Are you actually shutting it down by clicking on the Apple and selecting shutdown or just closing the lid so it goes to sleep? If you are just closing the lid then when you open it back up all the apps previously opened will still be open.

    Just a thought for clarification.

    Yes but first I clear anything on screen then shut down but sometimes I just close it if I want to return when I m ready to open again . Had this laptop for 8 yrs and doing the same thing I always do til now then it just started to act weird..

    What possible app have you added since this started? It looks like something is causing the apps to load.

    If you run Etrecheck, one of the sections shows recently installed applications.

    Catalina would not be the issue. OR at least the ones I have done had no issues. Run Etrecheck as Jake suggests. Post back the results.

    It is in a section toward the bottom of the saved report. It's a section titled "Software Installs (past 30 days)"

    another thing I found on desktop after updating OS X 10.15.5 so I copied and pasted below

    During the last macOS upgrade or file migration, some of your files couldn’t be moved to their new locations. This folder contains these files.
    Configuration files
    These configuration files were modified or customized by you, by another user, or by an app. The modifications are incompatible with the recent macOS upgrade. The modified files are in the Configuration folder, organized in subfolders named for their original locations.
    To restore any of the custom configurations, compare your modifications with the configuration changes made during the macOS upgrade and combine them when possible.
    Thanks in Advance
