    My PC lags if I don't force shutdown by holding the power button


    My version number is 19042.867

    This is what happens:
    If I normally shut down the PC through the Windows panel, when I turn it on again it lags.
    By lagging, I mean that every second, it freezes for a few frames. But not only the screen, audio as well.
    The only way for that not to happen is if I hold down the power button on my desktop until it forces shut-down.
    I'm pretty newbie at this, so if you need any logs or something like that, just let me know how to get them.

    Create a shortcut on your desktop with a time delay of '00' seconds. See How to Create a Shutdown Icon in Windows 10 .

    Thanks, it works!
    But is that bad for the PC?
    Also, should I be worried about this stuttering?

    You shouldn't force a shutdown by holding the power button. You can corrupt data on your drive.
    Shutdown.exe /s /t 00 is the same as Shutdown.exe /p

    Turn off fast start
    Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    Check your drive for issues
    Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    chkdsk c: /f
    It will say your disk is in use and if you want to schedule to next start = yes
    Restart

    As Megahertz implies, turn off Fast start and see if the problem persists.

    By the way, it's the user profile you are logged in to that is most as risk from hard shutdowns using the power button.
    - Windows writes the current session to the user profile during the shutdown process.
    - You might, one day, find that you cannot log back into that user account.
    - Make sure that you have created a spare [additional] local, password-protected Admin account so that you can get back into the computer to sort things out if your day-to-day user profile does ever get corrupted.

    @gregorio236 - You ask "Is it bad for the PC?" The answer is not a clear Yes or No. With a delay of '00' seconds this forces the PC to shutdown without waiting for anything else that is running in the background to close properly.

    The effect of this is impossible to quantify but, as a safeguard you could increase the time delay to, say, 3 seconds by changing the '00' to '03'.

    Thank you Megahertz, doing that fixed it for me.
    I turned off the quick start (but starting is still quick haha) and did the disk check.
    Where can I find the log of the disk check to see if there were any problems?
    And thank you Try3 for the tip, I will definitely be doing that!

    Gregorio,

    ChkDsk logs are in the Event viewer in two different places [1 Manual ChkDsk, 2 ChkDsk at boot]

    Here is an Event viewer, Custom view that displays the results of both these logs.
    ChkDsk - Manual and bootup scans.zip

    Unzip the attachment then open Event viewer [%windir%\system32\eventvwr.msc] &, on the right-hand side, select Import custom view

    Here is the log. Doesn't look like there were any problems
    chkdsk.txt

    Should I keep trying to discover why that was happening?

    Windows has made corrections to the file system.
    Stage 3: Examining security descriptors ...
    Cleaning up 1770 unused index entries from index $SII of file 0x9.
    Cleaning up 1770 unused index entries from index $SDH of file 0x9.
    Cleaning up 1770 unused security descriptors.

    I think you're good now, as long you don't use the power button to shutdown.

    I've created a shortcut on the taskbar to shutdown the computer.
    Shutdown.exe /p
