Bootcamp Switching Speed ?

Hello,

Playing around with Bootcamp, and am really disappointed. Running High Sierra.
Have a relatively new iMac and also have that solid state drive option for better start-up speeds.

Bootcamp is just about totally unusable for me.
It "works," but-

When it starts in the new Windows mode, it asks for not only a Password each time,
but also you have to pick your internet connection as a second option.
This really slows everything to a crawl.
Even without stopping for the Passwords, it is still extremely slow getting into windows.

*Any way of avoiding all of this ?
I'm a sole user, and would love to eliminate any and all passwords, etc.

Then, when going back to the OS, it is also very slow.

Not only that, but once back, I have all of those bouncing icons in the Dock
that I have to wait to quiet down. MS WORD and EXCEL are the worst, sometimes
taking, honest, no exaggeration, a full 5 minutes.

Any tricks to making Bootcamp actually usable ?
How to obtain relatively fast switching both ways, without all the nonsense requests each time ?

Would sure like to use.

BTW: Mojave (likely) any better ? Running High Sierra now.

VM Fusion any "better" ?

Thanks,
Bob

What are your machine specs?
I have just timed my iMac(with HDD not SSD)and booting to Windows and it took 90 seconds including the time to enter the password.
Booting back to MacOS(Mojave) was normal and no bouncing icons.

Hi,

Thanks for help; much appreciated.
a. The only bouncing icons that seem to go on for many minutes
are MS WORD and EXCEl. Orhers settle down very quickly.

Will try to include an image of my Mac specs.
if it doesn't make it, please let me know.

Again, much thanks for help.

Bob
