Computer Help / Re: Windows 10 boot up tips are required - Solved
« Last post by JohnCoool on October 21, 2020, 04:03:13 AM »
I uninstalled and reinstalled the latest update for Windows 10 released last week for me. It is (KB4579311)

I found a difference between the two laptops. Mine has more than one user and the other has only one and maybe that is why it is preloading the desktop before login. So I am disabling the others for testing and see if I can get the same result.

Will update after testing...

I want to clarify that on the above test. What I meant is that it works only for updates and not each time... This test will reveal if it works each time.

Okay.

What did you uninstall/reinstall ?

I did a test and uninstalled an updated and reinstalled to see if it would do it and it does Load desktop before login after restarting it.

So that is when I saw it working. But not sure why it does it every time on the other laptop. Seems like a glitch but I require it to work that way.

Yes it is done. Marked as closed.

According to the below link. It is only suppose to work after a required reboot after an update. So maybe that is where I noticed it before.

So not sure why it is working every time on the other laptop.

Anyway I needed to work on the other one and it is done...

I did come across that solution. I wanted to see if the Windows 10 way would work without 3rd party tools or solutions.

Seems hopeless...

You could try the steps in this article, although it seems a bit dated - https://lifehacker.com/make-windows-load-your-desktop-before-you-log-in-5645098

Create a restore though before making any changes.

According to some forum threads found on the internet. There are two settings for this but it did not always work for them.

I did it on the two upgraded laptops here (mine and the family one). It did not work on mine but it has worked on theirs.

There is a third laptop that was upgraded a few years ago from Windows 8 to Windows 10. But an earlier version to what is being upgraded to now and it has the fast startup option but does not have the 2nd one that is in the attachment and it did not work on it and it is on UEFI mode BIOS.

I worked on mine right after the upgrade for a dew days. So still not sure if there is something missing or if it legacy mode as mentioned earlier.

The two settings are:

Fast startup turned on.

The 2nd one is the same as the attached image.

I have been unable to find Microsoft documents on the subject.

Is it possible to try and check if you can find any on "Load desktop before login" from Microsoft just to confirm all the requirements so that I can test them.

I'd come across in the earlier Win 10 days where a number of people had turned off fast startup because of problems.

My laptops date from 2011 and also use the Legacy BIOS.

I found the answer to one of them while searching on the PC. I attached an image for that one.

I found information that other one might be related to Fast startup but it seems that Fast Startup does not work well on Legacy support motherboards.

I am not sure about this and will keep on looking for a better answer.

I want to set up the other Laptop for the family to load the desktop before login. It did the 1st few times then it went back to normal boot. Maybe it was a setting that I changed or maybe it was the issue with Fast Startup on Legacy support motherboards.
