    Definitely one place to start after an upgrade make sure get most important driver updates, as system shows it is good for this upgrade. Give it some more time to complete all updates, check startup items in Task manager Startup tab may also have to many running services will slow down startup, choose proper operating system 64 bit or 32bit when selecting here........ http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/...s-8700/drivers

    Look for an option called Fast Boot or Quick Boot in your BIOS and make sure it's turned on(Secure Boot too while you're there) and in power options make sure that Hibernate and Fast Startup are turned on.
    Fast Startup will only work if your PC is turned of. On Restarts it does nothing.

    I figure using this method only if going to use Hibernate to begin with.

    I do not use hibernate and never have, it will use as much disk space as you have memory. I do not want to waste 24GB of space

    Going to say that to,but for ones who want to actually use hibernate. Especially if have a SSD, writes and erases not good for life of the drive. Not sure thread starter has one, possibly not on a 2013 model PC.

    For @jds63 and @Gary,

    As usual it's a personal choice to use or not(I love it with my SSD). Here is some info on it, I highlighted some answers to your doubts, but, like I said it's a matter of choice. My SSD can do a few Petabytes before failing(the question of data integrity before it gets there, is another animal though):

    It’s probably worth mentioning quickly how we treat the hiberfile—if you read this and immediately went and did a dir /s /ah hiberfile.sys you would have found that it’s a pretty big file on disk. The hiberfile is sized by default at 75% of physical RAM. The file is essentially a reservation for hibernation data that will be written out as the system is dropping into hibernation. Typically much less space is actually used, and in the case of our fast startup usage, it’s typically ~10-15% of physical RAM but varies based on drivers, services, and other factors. The system also treats the hiberfile slightly differently than other files on disk, for example, the Volume Snapshot service ignores it (a small performance benefit.) You can disable hibernation and reclaim this space by running powercfg /hibernate off from an elevated command prompt. But be aware that if you do this, it will disable hibernation completely, including some nice capabilities like fast startup as well as hybrid sleep, which allows desktop systems to do both a sleep and hibernate simultaneously so if a power loss occurs you can still resume from the hibernated state. You can also run powercfg /hibernate /size and specify a value between 0 and 100 for the percentage of physical RAM to reserve for the hiberfile – but be careful! Specifying too small a size can cause hibernation to fail. In general, I recommend leaving it enabled at the default value unless you’re working on a system with extremely limited disk space.
    Another important thing to note about Windows 8’s fast startup mode is that, while we don’t do a full “Plug & Play” enumeration of all drivers, we still do initialize drivers in this mode. Those of you who like to cold boot in order to “freshen up” drivers and devices will be glad to know that is still effective in this new mode, even if not an identical process to a cold boot.
    This new fast startup mode will yield benefits on almost all systems, whether they have a spinning HDD or a solid state drive (SSD), but for newer systems with fast SSDs it is downright amazing. Check out the video below to see for yourself:

    Yes, and sorry, but what is a local account?
    Local account is like your own pc account like in windows 7, not a microsoft account.

    My local and outlook.com accounts both have my 1st and last name. For the local i had to use First Last Local because it couldn't be the same as the .com. Do you know how to change the local name? When I'm in outlook it wants to auto-complete my name to Joe Blow Local. Excel files etc are authored by Joe Blow Local.
    I am not entirely sure what you mean here, are you having problem with auto complete? Also please make a new thread about your problem instead of posting in this thread.

    Yes as you said it is a personal choice and I do not disagree with what you posted, but I have read here and at other places that Fast Boot should not be used. All I really know about it is that if you disable Hibernation it also will turn Fast Boot off. Also Fast Boot is only use when you turn on your PC from a powered off state. It is not used in restarts and such. I seldom turn off my PC . when I am not going to be using it for a long time, I just put it to sleep. The only time I actually shut it off is when I am on vacation.

    Now I get what you meant! Yeah but only when one shuts off using the start menu will it function also. WinX(right click Windows icon) is a total shut down like a restart. And in your case it would be a total waste of disk space. One thing stated in the article, is that, it doesn't restart the driver software(which is good to "refresh them") and solve subtle stability problems.

    Hi Dusty;

    That "Sleep" thing was a great suggestion as I tried it lst night around 7:30pm. I just came down and hit the spacebar and the screens came on instantly. If this is the way it's supposed to waork then I'm ok with doing things this way.

    Thank you very much for this great idea.

    If I may interject a moment...

    I recommend going to the Dell website and installing any and all updated drivers specifically for your computer and Windows 10 - (US): http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04?c=&l=&s=bsd

    Drivers, especially the correct drivers from the Manufacturer, make things run quite a bit more smoothly.

    In addition, here are some tips for speeding things up on your computer without installing those fake 'optimize tools' that are often advertised online. See this: Optimize Performance of Windows 8 - says Windows 8 but works for 10 too!

    Please note that on my own computers with updated drivers, the windows logo loading screen does take a bit more time than Windows 8 did to get to the desktop. It generally is double to quadruple the time, but the good side is everything else loads much faster. One tip you might consider is instead of shutting down, put your computer to sleep unless you'll be away for longer than a day. Loading times are often cut in half this way, and MS even recommends it over constant reboots. See the Optimize tutorial above for more tips on performance.
