Postman is starting on startup without being authorized

Issue: I’ve checked shell:startup and Startup Apps. Postman is absent from both of those. Despite this, Postman is starting up obtrusively every single time I open Windows. This has only been the case for a couple of weeks. I need some way to prevent this from happening, as I absolutely do not want or need Postman to start up every day.

Details: Each day, Postman starts up and runs an update. Again, Postman isn’t in Startup or the list of apps that run on startup (Windows 10).

If you’re comfortable with checking the Windows Registry, open “regedit” from your Start menu and look through these paths:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Maybe something is in there that needs to be removed?
