Fast Startup and why disable it?

With Fast Startup, Windows shuts down your system faster, and then it uses what it learned about your system to start up more quickly when you turn it on. It works with both hybrid shutdown and hibernation. Using a hibernated state, it starts up faster than a Windows startup and uses less power.

So, if it helps to boot up your computer faster than the normal windows startup, then why do we need to disable it?

It's because if you have enabled fast Startup on your computer, you may face hurdles in installing updates. Apart from that, the dual boot option will be missing on your computer with Fast Startup.
