Method #1: Turn on Fast Startup

The feature in discussion is Fast Startup which we are going to discuss in this section. So, when you shut down your system instead of dumping everything in your RAM, Windows will automatically store an image of the loaded drivers and kernels in a specific file called “Hiberfile’. Thus, the next time the system boots up again, the booting becomes much faster. In order to enable this feature, go through the following steps to ensure faster booting.

Step 1.Open the “Start” menu and look out for the “Power options”.

Turn on Fast Startup

Step 2.Click on “Choose what the power buttons do on the left side of the Window”.

Step 3.Now; select the option “Change settings that are currently unavailable”.

Method #2: Reduce the Boot Menu Time-out

When your computer starts up, the boot menu takes specific amount of time before the main windows operating screen turns up. Well, this extra time is given to start windows with safe mode if need be, but at the cost of increasing the overall time-length of the booting procedure. So basically we would cut short the time length from 30 seconds to 10 seconds by default to make Windows 10 booting faster. So the procedure is guided in the following manner:

Step 1.Right click on the “Start menu” and choose “Control Panel”.

Step 2.Go to “System” and select “Advanced system settings”.

Step 3.Under the “Startup and Recovery” section, click “Settings”.

Step 4.Now; in the “Time to display of operating systems” option, change the value from 30 seconds to 10 seconds and click “Ok”.

Method #3: Disable Start-up Programs

To configure the programs that start up with your system is a pivotal point in deciding the booting speed of your PC. Thus follow the steps as follows to turn off all those unnecessary programs to speed up Windows 10 booting process: 

Step 1.Press “Ctrl + Shift + Esc” and your “Task Manager” will open up.

What the system can perform, or what it stores is not a matter of concern when the system takes more than the usual time to boot. It will only give impetus to the dislike of the user who is about to use the operating system for the very first time.

Thus it is of paramount importance to make the booting faster to make the experience better. The methods mentioned above would definitely help you resolve the issue, but still if you find the problem still persisting, you can do some additional changes in the “Power Plan” settings, or uninstall some of the pre-installed softwares which are not used that much, this will also make your Windows 10 PC boot faster.
