shutdown problems in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
The shutdown problems in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 usually come along side the “Hybrid Shutdown” feature presented first in Windows 8 systems and also in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 systems. This feature is meant to decrease your device’s start-up time but unfortunately when you have shutdown problems in most of the cases it is caused by this feature. You don’t have to worry because we will show you below how you can disable the “Hybrid Shutdown” feature and fix your Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 operating system.
