    Is there a drawback (besides of the time) to deactivate quick start


    Is there a drawback (besides of the time) to deactivate the quick start?

    It (effecting both restart and shut down) can be done in the Power Options?

    And is it correct: deactivating the quick start means Win shuts down completely and starts without loading anything from the hard drive?

    Hi, do you mean fast startup

    or fast boot?

    If your system disk is a SSD, there's little advantage in using fast startup, which definitely causes some people problems.

    Hello Spoilo,

    Did you mean Fast Startup or Fast Boot instead of quick start?

    Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    Enable or Disable Fast Boot in UEFI Firmware Settings for Windows

    I agree with dalchina. Fast Startup has been known to sometimes cause issues with shutdown.

    No, a Restart doesn't use Fast Start up, it's always a full boot from cold. Fast Start up is only used when you power up after a Shut down.

    Correct. Fast Startup is a form of hybrid hibernation. At startup the kernel state is reloaded from hibefil.sys.

    Another advantage of turning it off is that, with Fast Start up enabled, at power on many PCs will skip the bios screen where you can use a function key to enter bios setup.

    I disable it on all computers I service. Too many issues caused by it being on. If a user wants/needs faster boot times an SSD can be installed. SSD's are not as expensive as they once were most do not need a very large one as most are not using a fraction of their current drive space.
    My biggest seller, a 250-256 gig SSD.

    Your computer will preform better than new.

    Thank you for the links. I mean fast start.

    Yes, an SSD. So that is why I never noticed a difference in the speed. And so the best is to turn if off then, I guess.

    Hello Brink!

    Thank you for the links, yes, fast stratup.

    I agree with dalchina. Fast Startup has been known to sometimes cause issues with shutdown.
    Yes, I will switch it off, thank you.

    No, a Restart doesn't use Fast Start up, it's always a full boot from cold. Fast Start up is only used when you power up after a Shut down.
    So each restart is a full start, there is no fast restart. Didn't know that. Thought, if enabled the Computer always starts / restarts with fast start. And no access to the BIOS, OK.

    Your computer will preform better than new.
    Yes, no doubt, I will trun it off.

    Thank you very much!

    I always disable Fast Startup on SSD based PCs since there is negligible speed improvement. I had to turn off Fast Boot in the BIOS of my 2012 motherboard on advice from Gigabyte to prevent the boot occasionally hanging on turning on the PC.

    I'm on the late show, I know.

    My 2 cents.
    I keep it off.
    Fast startup can cause sound issues(DPC problems) with the UAD Realtek drivers and Nahimic drivers.
    Also changes Windows makes to the registry, such as NTUSER.DATA(all your user settings for Windows that are temporarily saved in inside of an .ini file) and any final change an update needs to make permanent, Windows needs to be either restarted of completely turned off, also pendingfilerename operations(such as to the WinSXS folder for shared DLL's and OCX files) are done at full shutdown time.
