It is a well known thing that Windows tends to slow down when it comes to boot time as time passes. Though each newer version of Windows os faster than the previous one, that particular version can be very slow after awhile.

Due to this Microsoft has added a new feature of Fast Startup in Windows 10 which improves the boot time and let you quickly access the computer. If you are have performed a clean install of Windows 10 on your computer then this feature should be already activated on your device.

But if you upgraded your older version of Windows to Windows 10 then, you will have to enable the Fast Startup option which is hidden very well under the settings. When the Fast Startup option is enabled the instead of saving the required information in the RAM of the device, your computer will save it in a file called Hiberfile and will access the required information directly from there.

Follow the step-by-step instruction given below to activate the Fast Startup on your Windows 10 PC.
