    Proper Shutdown? hold "Shift"


    Hi,

    I've just read about Holding "Shift" while pressing Shutdown in windows 8.1

    What is the difference when I do, and do not hold shift with shutdown?

    and why would I ever want to not "fully" shutdown with shift pressed?

    thanks.

    Select Power Options and then on the left side select "Choose What the Power buttons Do" and the next screen has the Fast Startup option.
