  1. There is also fast startup of Windows 10 (default) and standard startup. Standard startup always happens on computer restart. On shut down / Power on windows saves its state and resumes in a ‘Fast startup’. This can be noted if you for example leave a website open, shut down, and power up your system tomorrow you will notice the same website is still running when you power up your sys.

    To disable fast startup go into the ‘Define what your power button does’ settings and click on the checkbox ‘Fast startup’.

    When you install a new hardware component, if you have Fast Startup enabled, always remember to ‘Restart’ your system after you power it up to fully install your component.
