How to Disable Fast Startup on Windows 10?
What is fast startup?
Fast startup is a Windows 10 feature designed to reduce boot time. Microsoft uses it to create an illusion that Windows 10 runs faster than its ‘ancestors’ on old and slow hardwares, e.g., traditional mechanical hard drive.
However, most of modern PCs equip high speed technology, there is no significant difference of boot speed.
Worse still, fast startup can conflict with some drivers and applications without compatibility with it. For example, when Intel graphic driver conflicts with system, you may encounter the black screen issue when the system wakes up from sleep.
