Preventing shut down in Win 11

Occasional Visitor
Whenever I am doing some work and there are multiple apps and tabs opened and I close all of them and try to shut down my laptop the "this app is preventing from shutting down" dialog box appears (for a sec)/flashes and then it shut downs. Can anyone have this issue and can anyone help me and also the shutdown process and switch on process is slower compared to Win 10

See if these steps helps you:

-Open Registry Editor.
-Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop.
-In the right pane, right click the empty space and choose New >DWORD Value.
-Rename the newly created DWORD (REG_DWORD) as AutoEndTasks.
-Double click on it and change its value to 1.

Hope this helps!
