  1. Latest 20H2 update makes shutdown / restart much slower than it should be


    Hey there! Today I was casually gaming when I decided to take a break and clean some junk files and update my PC, like a do regularly. So, I opened settings and downloaded the update (pretty sure it was the cumulative update for 20H2?), and restarted my PC. Then, I cleaned up some junk files and restarted my PC, except this time, it took about 5 minutes to just turn off before it even restarted! I was thinking maybe it was doing a smaller update or something, since my computer usually takes around 15 seconds to turn off, but after having to forcefully turn off my PC (holding the power button for 5 seconds), and just turning it off this time after it had booted again. It took 5 minutes again to just shutdown! I hope there’s a way to fix this, as it is pretty weird and irritating. Hopefully I’m not the only one this has happened to!

    Latest 20H2 update makes shutdown / restart much slower than it should be

    Quick Tip: Easily Shutdown or Restart WITHOUT Installing Updates.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one that has been in the situation of needing to shutdown a computer quickly, but there are updates waiting to install. Previous to Windows 8 you could at least restart without being forced to install the updates, and if you are quick you could hit the power button when the computer begins to POST and the computer will turn off. With Windows 8, now even restarting forces you to install the updates. You could use the cmd and Shutdown.exe to shutdown the machine, but I'm getting old and try to avoid the command prompt as much as possible.

    Anyway, the easy way I've found to Shutdown or Restart without being forced to install the updates is to hit Ctrl+Alt+Del and use the power button in the bottom right on the screen that comes up. For whatever reason, this power button is the only one I've found in Windows 7/8 that gives the option to Shutdown or Restart without installing the updates.

    Thought I'd share.

    My computer is wayyyyy slower than it should be: Hi, last summer I built a pretty good desktop, 16gb RAM, 4 core AMD, NVIDIA 1060, etc. But it just feels so slow, right now it is orders of magnitude slower than my other laptop, which isn't half as good (8 gb RAM, 4 core intel, internal GPU).

  5. PC suddenly started restarting much slower for no reason

    in Windows 10 Ask Insider
    PC suddenly started restarting much slower for no reason: As the title says, there's really no background to this as I noticed it only a few days ago. When restarting, it now hangs on "Restarting" screen for a few minutes, so booting up is still fast but it takes much longer for the PC to "start" restarting. Windows is installed on...
