Windows 10 Virtual Machines running very slow in Hyper-V Server

Last Modified: 2019-12-29
 I am running into a situation where Windows 10 virtual machines in Hyper-V servers are running so slow. In the same servers, other virtual machines running Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2016 operating system are running as fast they can and very responsive.
 But on three separate Hyperv-V servers, Windwos 10 virtual machines are extremely slow even if I assign like 8 to 12GB of RAM (when it does not need more than 4GB). I allocate about 40-50GB of total space to these and they have about 20GB free space and they all have 1 vCPU assigned.
  Where do I need to check to find out what is slowing down these Windows 10 virtual machines?
