How To Fix Booting Takes a Long Time in Windows 10

Fix Booting Takes a Long Time in Windows 10

Sometimes, your laptop or PC  eventually takes a long time to startup and continues to do so afterwards. That’s pretty uncommon and frustrating too. So, without any delay let’s jump right towards the quick and free process:

  1. Windows Startup Manager Setup
    This is the most effective step to take. Mostly, Startup programs are the cause behind boot lag in every laptops. If you’re unaware of Startup Programs, they are basically normal software we installed which loads while you start your device. Some of them have High or low impact on startup and most of the software have medium impact, depending upon the size of program.

    Programs like Internet Download Managers and light weight programs usually have either low or medium impact over startup. While High spec software like filmora, photoshop, lightroom have higher impact. So, based upon priority, wisely choose those programs you need frequently on startup and disable all the unnecessary programs.

    To do so, follow these simple steps: Press Windows+Shift+ESC at once (Task Manager will open up) > Go to Startup > Finally Select Unnecessary program and click disable located on the bottom-right corner of Task Manager. After this process, you’ll find a major difference in boot-up next time.

  2.  Enable Fast Startup
    This feature is default in windows 10. This sounds really working one but trust me, this is not effective as much as getting an SSD or the first option. This will somehow decrease boot-up speed by optimizing some functions but it’ll be difficult to figure out changes.

    To do so, follow these steps: Press Windows Button and Search for Control Panel > Go to Power Option > From Top Left side click on Choose what the power buttons do > Then go to Change settings that are currently Unavailable > Tick over Fast Startup and click on save changes.

  3. Install Latest Updates
    This might be the last thing you think of. But Microsoft has always optimized resources and focused over more speed and less lag in it’s updates. This is not a compulsory step but it worth a try.

    To do so, Click on Start Button > Click on Settings > Go to Update and security > Click on Check for Update. 

  4. Get an SSD
    This is more like a suggestion rather than a step. There is a huge difference between HDD and SSD. After you replace your HDD with SSD, you’ll find a tremendous amount of difference in speed of your computer.
