Windows 10: Unable to Change Startup Selection Solved

    Unable to Change Startup Selection

    The system configuration - startup selection is set to selective startup.
    I didn't so this and I'm unable to change it.
    When I tick normal startup and reboot it reverts back to selective startup.

    Any ideas how to change this?

    Hello James, :)

    This is normal. It's been like this since Windows 7 at least.

    As long as all items are checked under "Selective startup", it will effectively be the same as having "Normal startup" selected.
