    Fast Start up

    Is there a way I can turn off fast start up without using the admin password?

    Hello Frank, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    I'm afraid that you will need to be signed in as an administrator, or provide admin credential, to turn off Fast Startup.

    Welcome to TenForums @Frank1957

    No, not if you are signed in as a standard user. That is a setting that requires administrator rights to change. You'll have to sign in with an account with administrator right to turn off fast startup, or give the name and password of an admin account when asked if signed in with a standard account. Do you not have an admin account you could use? Why do you need to turn off fast startup anyway?

    As a one-time way of starting up without using fast startup you can choose Restart on the Start menu's Power button. This doesn't turn off fast startup, it just does a full shut down and starts up from cold this one time.
