Windows 10 Fast Startup Missing

This article will help you fix the Fast Startup missing option in your Windows 10 PC error. Eventually, you'll be able to turn on the Fast Startup setting.

How to Fix the Fast Startup Option Is Missing in Windows 10

You have noticed that the Fast startup option is missing in Windows 10. When you open the control panel, you will see that the option is greyed out and has become unavailable. You need to use the administrative account to change this setting to get it back. You can also enable Sleep and Hibernate from the Power menu.

First, go to the Power Options in the control panel. If this option is greyed out, click on it and enable it. Alternatively, you can also choose not to turn it on. To disable this option, click the Turn on fast startup button and uncheck the checkbox.

You can also check the hibernation feature and check the box for it. You must enable it for the fast startup option to work. You can also go to the Control Panel to enable it. In the Control Panel, click on the power options button and choose the Hibernate and Sleep checkboxes. You can open the Registry Editor to enable the Fast startup option if this doesn't work. To do this, you must log in with an admin account.

The Fast Startup option is a helpful feature that lets Windows start up faster after a shutdown. It also saves your operating system to a hibernation file, making the boot process more quickly. However, the feature does have some downsides. It locks the installation drive, making it difficult to switch back to it if you use a dual boot configuration.

Try to Use the Command Prompt

You can disable windows 10's fast startup option using the command prompt. You can use the command prompt to make changes if you have administrative privileges. You can run scripts, repair system files, and perform advanced administrative tasks. It also allows you to change your PC's power plan and the fast startup setting.

Start your computer in Safe mode or Windows Recovery to access the Command Prompt. Then, open a command-line window, preferably a CMD, and type the following commands: sfc /sfc/restart. This will restart Windows 10 to the Advanced Options window. Once in the Advanced Options window, you can run the System File Checker command to scan for corrupt system files. You can then replace them if they are corrupt.

Another way to improve Windows 10 startup time is by disabling Wake-on-LAN. This feature helps shut down a computer but can cause some problems. The hibernation file can take up hard drive space. Also, if you use virtualization or dual boot, you may experience difficulties. You may also experience problems with fans and power buttons. In addition, you should be aware that Windows updates might not install correctly if you enable Fast Startup.

Another way to fix Windows 10's slow startup is to boot it into Safe Mode. Press the power button multiple times until the Boot Options menu pops up. If you start your computer this way, it will be up to 30% faster than in normal mode.
