Windows 10 slow shutdown? This bug might be the reason

Microsoft has confirmed that certain Windows 10 computers are marred by a USB-C bug, an issue that can slow down the shutdown process on the machines.

The problem, as the company explained, is associated with its implementation of Intel's USB Type-C Connector System Software Interface (UCSI) software in Windows 10 version 1809.

Here's all you need to know about it.

Issue causing delaying in shutdown

In a recent FAQ post, Microsoft revealed the issue, noting that it can cause up to a minute's delay in shutdown.

However, the company emphasized this would only happen when a device has just been plugged in or disconnected and the UCSI software is working.

Meaning, the chances of slow shutdown prevail when devices like docks or chargers are plugged/unplugged during the power transition.

Apart from that, the issue doesn't affect Windows 10

Having said that, it's important to note that the USB-C implementation issue doesn't affect Windows 10 version 1809 in any other way.

The USB-C connector of your machine would work just as it does and the performance of the system will also remain unaffected.

"The system and the USB Type-C ports should continue to function properly after the next wake or restart," Microsoft said.
