In Windows 11 (and 10), you can Champions Quick start At least two ways through the Power Options settings of the Control Panel or Command Prompt, and in this guide you will learn how.
Fast Startup is a power-related feature that allows your computer to start up faster, combining hibernation with regular shutdowns to speed up system startup. In other words, when the feature is enabled, the system saves the kernel, drivers, and system state in the hibernation file (hiberfil.sys), and then shuts down the computer, but without saving the desktop session and running applications. When the computer is turned on, the system loads the contents of the hibernation file to resume work faster.
Although this is a useful feature for getting to the desktop faster, Fast Startup can also cause problems. For example, it can cause conflicts when installing updates, managing encrypted storage devices, or in dual-boot systems because it won’t allow you to access the drive from the other configuration. On some systems, you may not even be able to access the motherboard firmware (UEFI or BIOS) if fast boot is enabled.
Whatever the issue, in Windows 11 or even Windows 10, you can enable or disable Fast Startup through the Control Panel or Command Prompt.
This guide will teach you how to enable or disable fast startup feature on Windows 11.
