I run Windows 10 Pro. Startup takes about 15 seconds, but restart takes about 80 seconds. Logic suggests that a restart should be as quick or quicker than startup.
Is my computer working properly?
Thanks in advance.
It has to stop everything before it starts them back up again
restart = shut down + start up
It keeps the Windows Kernel, loaded drivers, and system state in RAM after shutdown.
Doing a restart clears all of that out instead, thus the time difference.
