    Hello. Is there some sort of option to make Windows 10 boot up faster? I'm not talking about having to disable some features to make it boot faster. Or better yet, a faster rebooting method? Something like how Android has Soft Reboot?

    Besides using a faster drive such as a SSD, no.

    ...if you already have fast startup enabled (it is enabled by default).
    You can check if it is enabled from Control Panel -> Choose what the power buttons do.

    On gaming motherboards there is usually an option in the bios menu for that as well. You can also go with a hybrid drive. But if your looking for the most improvement. Get a solid state and use the paragon OS software system to move your OS from the old drive to the new ssd. A reliable yet decently priced ssd is a Kingston drive if your looking to save.

    Fast boot is on by default in Windows 10

    Depending on your hardware, if you have a custom built system, there may be ways in the UEFI bios and the way the system has been installed to speed up projected boot times. This can include not enabling all USB ports and devices until Windows is fully loaded, as well as switching from legacy boot mode with MBR to a GPT partition setup. Disable non-essential apps from opening on startup, increasing RAM, and using SSD can increase boot times quite dramatically.
