  8. Now, choose the Change settings that are currently unavailable link above Power and sleep button settings.
  9. Click and disable the checkbox of Turn on fast startup and click Save Changes.
  10. If the option is not present, then the fast startup has been disabled already on the system.

Set virtual memory manually

  8. After that, restart the system, and it will fix the windows 10 slow startup issue.
