I have set my Docker Desktop to not start up automatically at log in.

Is there a way to start Docker Desktop for Windows from the command line?

I can't find any reference to it in the official documentation.

If you're using Docker for Windows, then simply start the desktop app installed in C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Docker for Windows.exe

You can also stop Docker for Windows and run just the Docker daemon dockerd.exe. That'll only let you run Docker Windows Containers. dockerd.exe is in the program files directory.
