    I have recently upgraded my phone to pie, and I like it alot except a thing or two. but my biggest issue is that every time I restart my phone, all of my recent apps are closed. I work on my phone a lot and rely on all my app tabs to be open, but when I restart my phone, all my recent apps are cleared out and I have to start all over again. is there a way to stop this from happening? I never had this issue on any other versions before

    This is normal after restarting the phone , it's like a computer when you shut it off it restarts all the programs again.

    I know its normal for PIE. But it wasnt normal on OREO or all other previous versions. I want to know if I can stop this from happening

    I dont see how after a restart that cuts power to run any application until rebooted can hold things in memory? This method is used to help clear minor glitches in system by clearing memory and restarting applications again.

    Not normal for Pie... at least in my case. I rebooted my phone just to see and I have 10 apps running in background and after reboot... I still have my 10 apps showing in recent apps.

    I completely agree. I started a thread about this right after I got the Pie update. I got some suggestions there, but none of them worked for me; you might want to give them a try, though. And it's not just a restart: for me, the list of recent apps is consistently reduced to just 5 overnight. On Oreo, even restarting the phone (hold down power button, select Restart) retained the list of recent apps. I found it tremendously convenient, and the Pie/OneUI arrangement tremendously inconvenient. But they didn't ask you and me, La Pinche Pao; I'm afraid we're going to have to live with it.

    I did get a suggestion for an app in the Samsung store called Good Lock, which supposedly addresses this and other issues.

    Also I do have Auto Optimization turned on in Device care app. Even with about 10 apps it didn't close any at reboot so for me it's not that being too aggressive in closing apps. Maybe you have a Battery or other utility app installed that could be managing open apps?

    @La Pinche Pao and @Dave-in-Decatur, what carrier are you using? It could be a carrier special... like a Verizon special that they put in. They like to put in their own tweaks. I forgot there was another thread recently about a different issue and it was a Verizon only "feature."

    Yeah, that's definitely a possibility, if others aren't seeing this. I am on Verizon.

    If you go into them , they all refreshed like mine . It shows like it held the memory but didn't.

    I'll try if I restart with apps again but I have no doubt that they will restart as you say. It's just that the OP said recent apps shows empty at the reboot which I know doesn't happen to mine.

    The rarely reboot my phone but if I do I close all my background apps to get a clean reset nothing in the background.

    It's interesting how you read of slight variances and you'd think would be the same but possibly carriers do put in their own tweaks... like if recent apps get closed at reboots, I red in reddit some people have an "Outdoor Mode" in their display settings that's different from the "Adaptive display" and stuff like that.

    Replying to my own post.... I think now that my issue is a different one. I do find that when I restart, I get the list of recent apps that I had before the restart. My problem is the resetting of the list overnight.
