Over 100 terminal windows open automatically after login

Please help!

I have Debian Linux installed on half my laptop, and Windows on the other half. The Linux desktop manager is GNOME.

After logging in to Linux, over 100 terminal windows open automatically. Does anyone know how to stop this? It's exhausting closing all those windows.

Thanks in advance,

close all terminals
choose log out this saves your session
then log back in

if not go to controll center > ( KDE calls kde components >session manager )

set it to restore previous session

or something of that sort
