VS code - stop reopening old tabs
When I open VS Code inside a project dir, it reopens all the tabs that were open last time, and re-expands all the folders that were unfolded last time.

I find this annoying. Usually, when I close VS Code, it's because I'm done working with what I was doing. I don't want to manually "clean up" at the end of every work session like it's a physical desk. The computer should clean up for me, like a dutiful janitor.

I already have these in my config:
```
"files.hotExit": "off",
"window.restoreWindows": "none",
```

I also tried launching with `code -n .`. But it still remembers the tabs and unfolded folders. How can I make it not remember?
