    Fast Startup question

    I just read that there is a setting in the power section called 'turn on fast startup. This is not listed on my pc under shutdown settings. Only lists 'sleep' and 'lock'. Do I need to unhide this button somehow? Do I need to be signed on as ADMIN? Thank you.

  2. Fast Startup not working but hibernate is working.

    Hello Anubhav,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that the fast startup is not working after the check disk in your PC. We will help you.

    To assist you better, I suggest you to answer the below questions.

    • What issue were you facing to perform the check disk?
    • Are you getting any error messages?
    • What is the make and model of your PC?
    • Which Edition of Windows 10 are you using?
    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    Using Group Policy Editor:

    Note: This option for using group policy is only available in the Windows 10 Pro editions.

    • Press Windows Key + R combination and put gpedit.msc in
      Run dialog box.
    • In the left pane navigate to:

    • Now look in the right pane, you’ll got the policy named Require use of fast startup as shown above.
    • Double click on this policy to get the window shown below.
    • Now you can use following settings:
    • Force “Hybrid boot” to be always turned on = Enable
    • Do NOT force “Hybrid boot” to be always turned on = Disabled/Not configured
      (Default Setting)
    • After making changes click Apply followed by OK.
    Restart the machine and check if it helps. Keep us posted to help you better.
