If your laptop takes  long times in booting up, then  below are some things you can do to speed it up
1.Get an SSD
You can  make device boot faster by replacing spinning hard drives (HDD) with a new solid-state drive (SSD).

SSDs are generally faster than traditional HDDs. After installing an SSD, without any futher investigation you notice your device becomes faster!
You’ll have to open your laptop to get this fixed, but it’simple
Note: make sure  the SSD  you choose is compatible.

 
2. Organize applications on your device

 The longer that list of applications, the longer it takes to boot. However,both Windows and OS X let you choose which applications boots with the machine .

And if your laptop already has an SSD, then you can further shorten its boot time.




On Windows 10, look for Task Manager and open it. Click the Startup tab and see a list of programs that start automatically when Windows 10 boots. Look for programs you don’t need at startup, particularly if they are listed as having a high startup impact in the right column. Disable them

3.Windows: Fast startup
For Windows 10 laptops,  we have fast startup. It brings  down the startup time by creating a state between shutdown and hibernation where for your system state to be  saved as a hibernation file,  then loaded when you start up your laptop . It prevents Windows the trouble of reloading the kernel, drivers, and your settings. Unlike hibernation mode though

Fast startup is enabled by default on Windows 10. But to check,Go to Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Power Options.
Click Choose what the power buttons do from the left panel.
Click Change settings that are currently unavailable at the top of the window and scroll down to the bottom and make sure the box is checked for Turn on fast startup (recommended).

4.OS X: use Automatic login
for Mac owners who have more than one user account set up. With automatic login, you bypass the login screen and log right into one of your accounts to speed the startup process along. Here,this  setting lets you log into OS X without needing to enter your password, automatic login is not advisable if you carry your laptop with you everywhere you go and are prone to leaving it unattended in public places. If your laptop spends most of the time safely at home, here’s how to enable it.

Open System Preferences and click Users & Groups.
Click the lock button in the lower-left corner and enter your account password.
Click Login Options in the left panel.
Choose an account from from the Automatic login pull-down menu and enter the password for that account.
