    Windows 10 takes a long time to boot

    So, I've encountered this issue lately where Windows 10 takes considerably longer to boot than before. (Usually 4 to 5 minutes) It used to boot under 30 seconds before so I don't know what went wrong here.

    So, the screen with the Windows logo and loading circle disappears quickly but then it hangs after when a black screen appears with nothing but the mouse cursor(Which can be moved around.) This is the infact main problem, the black screen remains for quite a time before the user screen appears then the desktop. What can cause this problem? Can it be an update, as I never had this issue before neither with Windows 8?

    There is a default setting in Windows that turns on Fast start-up. Strange as it sounds this might be your problem.

    You can turn it on or off and see if it makes a difference.

    Sorry for not replying sooner but I believe this issue is solved for now.

    After I disabled fast startup and tried cold booting my laptop again, there was no considerable difference. But when I changed / turned back fast startup again It started going smooth like it used to. Boots under 13 seconds now, hooray to that!
