Windows 10 Boot Up Slower than Windows 8.1

I upgraded my one-year old Dell Inspiron 7537 laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. All went very well. Win10 is a nice improvement and all of my apps, programs, and drivers run fine. The only downside - Win10 boots slower than my Win8.1 installation, probably about 50% slower. I have the absolute minimum number of apps/programs loading at startup. Would a clean install of Win10 help this issue?

Hi Dennis,

Welcome to the forums. If you view the start-up tab in Task Manager (clicking "more details" at the bottom, if required), does it show any high-impact items?

For my startup items, only OneDrive is listed as high impact. Panda Security is medium, Dell Quickset is low, and Synaptics Touchpad is low. Actually booting Win10 from a cold start is about the same as Win8.1. It's the restart or reboot that appears to take long.

That's good to know that cold boots are quick :). On restarting, is it the time taken to shut down that is longer - as the initial boot part of both restart/cold boot should be the same.

If that is the case, perhaps there's a lingering application that really slows things down when Windows is trying to close all apps for a shutdown/restart.

I love it how people automatically thinks it's related to something other than Windows 10 - which it's not. Windows 10 is much slower than it's processor. Why I do not know, but it's a fact. And that people accept it is another story...
