Why don’t you use the task-manager to disable the autorun?

Right-click on the start-bar > task-manager > click on more details at the bottom > goto to Autostart tab > select Docker for Windows in the list and click on Disable button.

This is not really shorter but less scary in my eyes :wink:

This would work, if docker is started via windows autostart, which it isn’t for me. So that i can’t deselect it in the task-manager.

Btw, even with version 2.0.0.2 deselecting on boot option does not work.

That works fine! Tanks!

For my system (Win 10 Pro 1809, Docker 2.0.0.2), the registry location was at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StartupApproved\Run

And two other HKEY_USERS\[xxLONG STRING HERExx]\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

I had to use the Find menu option to search for Docker for Windows keys by name to get rid of it from startup.
