How to Enable Fast Startup in Windows 10

Want to enable or disable Fast Startup in your Windows 10 Computer? It's a piece of cake. Follow this tutorial.

This setting might be enabled by default in your Computer. With this option enabled, your system will boot much faster, therefore it is recommended to set it to enabled. It starts fast because Windows saves system information in a "hiberfil.sys" file when you shutdown, Windows then triggers this file when you start your Computer again.

Today, when I started my PC, I noticed it stared very slow than usual. When I checked if someone has disabled fast startup, the option wasn't there. Later, I found that someone has disabled hibernate in my PC. Please note that Fast Startup will only work when the hibernate is enabled. If you'll disable hibernate, then fast startup will not work.

If hibernate option is enabled in your system then you can easily turn on the fast start from Power Options. You can find the settings here ==> Settings > System > Power & sleep > Additional Power Settings > Choose what the power buttons do (this is explained in detail below). If you can't find the Fast Startup settings there, then follow the following steps.

Note: Restart isn't affected.
  • Open Command Prompt as administrator. To do this, press Windows key + X and select Command Prompt (admin).
  • Now type "powercfg -h on" without quotes and hit enter.
