'App did not close properly'

[I hope this is the correct Forum for this question]

I am in the habit of shutting down my computer [Win 10 OS] without closing the individual apps. I assume the OS will shut down anything that is open at that moment.

I am puzzled why apps (from PortableApps) feel it necessary to remind me that their apps 'did not shut down properly last time'. Is this really necessary? It is VERY annoying - a bit like a spinster aunt reminding me to take my shoes off every time I enter that house.

Is there a work-around? An option I can set to NOT remind me evey time?

Thanks for any pointers

It is not a reminder, it is a warning

When you shutdown Windows it basically force kills the apps, it doesn't let them close properly, which means the apps can't do the actions it needs to clean up their settings properly.

If you use the PortableApps Platform there is a setting (Options->Advanced->Close Apps On Platform Exit) that means you only need to remember to close one thing, not each app.
