Re: Windows 10 Fast Start-up
I'm sure Brian will discuss this but I'll give my perspective. Fast boot doesn't allow the system to reboot when you turn it off. It's as though you always used hibernate or sleep instead of doing a full shut down or doing a full reboot.
You should only use fast boot if you reboot your machine at intervals. I'm not sure how long, perhaps a number of days, perhaps a week, you can experiment. But just as you will get instability if you leave Windows running too long without a full boot or a full reboot, so to will you get instability by using quick boot and only that. For the purposes we are discussing, it amounts to the same thing.
reboot on a schedule. Reboot does do a full reboot.
Also, if you install a program and you need to reboot the computer afterwords, don't use shutdown if you use fast boot. Use the reboot command so you will get a full bootup.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Windows 100 Fast Start-up
Brian, when I copied and pasted “windows fast start up displays power & sleep settings” into the search box after pressing the Windows key, it said “see web results.” Also, why would I want to uncheck a box that says “fast start-up” if I want a fast start-up. I’m using the latest version of Windows 10, so what am I missing?
