BIOS or UEFI is an extremely powerful tool used to tweak the PC’s hardware such as RAM, CPU, or motherboard, and so on. In addition, the BIOS also has options to increase the security of your PC. Because the BIOS has so many cool features, a lot of people like to access the BIOS to “groping”.
The most common way to enter the BIOS is to restart the computer and then spam the function key into the BIOS (usually the F2 key or the Delete key), these keys will vary depending on the motherboard manufacturer. However, if you don’t want to have to spam the keys continuously like that, you want to do something for it to be more gentle, you can apply the following way.
Method 1: Use the Start Menu
Step 1: Open Start Menu then click Power.
Step 2: Long press the . key Shift then choose Restart.
Step 3: A green screen will appear, select Troubleshooting > Advanced options > UEFI Firmware Settings. You will then be directed to the BIOS.
If you can’t find the UEFI Firmware Settings option, it’s likely that your computer doesn’t have UEFI at all. This usually happens because your PC is too old and only has BIOS, not UEFI. The second case is that your motherboard has UEFI, but Windows 10 boots from a drive partitioned with MBR, not GPT. If your boot drive is partitioned with MBR, it will force UEFI to use BIOS Legacy mode to lock BIOS access right in Windows 10.
Method 2: Use Command Prompt
Step 1: Open Start Menutype Command Prompt then choose Run as Administrator.
Step 2: Copy and paste the following line into Command Prompt already Enter.
shutdown /r /fw
If successful, you will see a message on the screen with the content of your PC shutting down in less than 1 minute.
If you see this message, “Boot to firmware UI is not supported by this system’s firmware” during shutdown, it means your motherboard does not have UEFI. However, it is also not excluded that it is Windows 10 installed on an MBR partitioned drive.
Method 3: Create Shortcut in BIOS
Instead of using the above methods, you can create a shortcut to quickly access the BIOS with just a double click.
Step 1: Right click on desktop select new then choose Shortcut.
Step 2: Copy and paste the following line into the box Type the location of the item.
shutdown /r /fw
Step 3: Name the shortcut as you want and then select finish.
Step 4: Right click on shortcut you just created on the desktop, select Properties then choose Advanced.
Step 5: Select Run as administrator then choose OK.
Step 6: Select Apply then choose OK. From now on, every time you click on the shortcut, the computer will take you into the BIOS.
Thank you for watching!
