moderated Re: How do I get to the "Fast Start" option in Windows 10?


I read a post on a forum discussion that using the /hibernate off just disables hibernation, and /h off disables both hibernation and fast start up, but I don't know enough about hibernation to say that is true. sounds a little far fetched.

Hello Brian:
If you turn off hibernation, is the fast start up option also turned off
along with hibernation or, is it still there, but hidden?
If it is hidden because hibernation is turned off, would it be a good
idea, to first turn off fast start up, before turning off hibernation.

From what you describe it does appear that you have hibernation
fully disabled, which would make Fast Startup an impossibility
(which is a good thing, in my opinion).

If you want to reenable the ability to hibernate for the machine,
you'll need to open an elevated command prompt (admin privileges)
and enter the following command:

*powercfg /hibernate on

*After exiting, and restarting your system, then see what shows up
in the Power Options dialog.
