Windows 10 will not shut down

Recently after applying Windows updates on a Win10 machine the unit would reboot every time no matter whether “Shut down” or an other option was chosen. Even using a command prompt and “Shutdown /f” resulted in a reboot. Looking into the issue it seems this is somewhat common. The simple fix was to turn off “Fast Start Up” by going to: Control Panel / Power Options / Choose what the power buttons do / uncheck – Turn on fast start up.
