Fix Windows 10 Not Shutting Down All The Way

There is an issue with Microsoft having the fast boot turned on by default. This prevents the PC from turning all the way off when you select "Shut down". Follow the steps below to fix that.

Windows + X (hold windows button then press X at the same time)

Power options

Additional power settings (link on the right)

Choose what the power button does

Change settings that are currently unavailable

(Un check) Turn on fast startup, Hibernate and Lock

    1. Had to do it when I first got it as well. To top it off an app I paid $129 for won't work now because it thinks it's already on another computer. There seems to be no fix. I emailed them, but with my luck it won't get fixed.
