How To Enter Bios Windows 10? Microsoft’s latest OS versions, including Windows 10, have generated numerous questions about how to enter BIOS.
UEFI is another form of BIOS that is rarely seen. UEFI is the replacement for standard BIOS and can be used to configure equipment, determine boot options, and gather system information.
Quite often you will not see an invitation like Press the Del key (F2) to enter Setup when you turn on your computer or laptop. Nevertheless, setting up your computer or laptop is not difficult.

Entering UEFI Settings from Windows 10
This method requires that Windows 10 is installed in UEFI mode (as a rule, it is) and you can log into the OS itself or at least get to the login screen.
- First, you need to tap on the notification icon and select “All parameters“. Once you’ve done that, you need to open up “Update and Security” in the settings and go to “Recovery“.
- In recovery, click the Restart Now button under the “Special Boot Options” section. After the computer restarts, you will see a screen that is the same (or similar) like the one below.
- Select the “Diagnostics” item, then – “Advanced options“, in the additional options – “UEFI firmware settings” and, finally, confirm your intention by clicking the “Restart” button.
- After a reboot, you will be taken to the BIOS or, more precisely, UEFI (just out of habit, the settings of the motherboard are usually called BIOS, probably this will continue in the future).
- You can reboot your PC into UEFI without logging into Windows 10 by pressing the “Power” button while holding down the Shift key, and then pressing the “Reboot” option to take you to the special boot settings for the system.

Logging Into BIOS When You Turn On The Computer
- You may also enter BIOS by pressing the Delete key (for most PCs) or F2 (for most laptops) immediately when the computer turns on before the OS starts loading. In general, this appears below the inscription: Press Key_Name to enter setup.
- If there is no such inscription, a person can study the documentation provided with the motherboard or laptop. That information should be shown there as well.
- In Windows 10, entering the BIOS this way is complicated by the fact that the computer boots up really quickly, and the user may not see which key to press.
- In order to fix this problem, you can: disable the fast boot function in Windows 10. To do this, just right-click on the “Start” button in Windows 10, then select “Control Panel,” proceed to the Power option in the Control Panel.
Choose “Power button actions” from the left, then “Change settings that are currently unavailable.“
- In the “Shutdown Options” section, under the “Shutdown Options” heading, uncheck “Enable Fast Startup” and save the changes. After that, turn off your computer or restart it, and try to enter the BIOS using the required key.
Note: sometimes, a monitor connected to a discrete video card won’t show any BIOS information, nor can a keyboard be used to enter it. Reconnecting to the motherboard’s integrated graphics adapter (HDMI, DVI, VGA) can help.
