Windows 10 on Hard drive or SSD?

Some people I hear say that windows runs faster if install it on a SSD drive. My old computers had one hard drive and windows of course was in there. Over time the computers would slow down. Every time I see Disk in task manager at 100% which annoys me every time I boot up my computer. I already have the parts to build my first PC but I have a question. Do I install Windows 10 on the SSD or the hard drive?

The entire point of an SSD is faster boot speeds, use HDDs for mass storage where speed is irrelevant.

On the ssd, faster loading times.

SSD hands down. there is zero reason to install a modern copy of windows on a mechanical hard drive
