    Do believe Secure boot is a feature in the BIOS, not boot manager why would you need this, only needed when booting from a disc or USB to do the clean install. See i confused boot menu with manager here.

    Within windows 10 if have UEFI get to Secure boot settings https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5...dows-10-a.html

    The delete button still works for me. I am using windows 10. Have a look at this for going into safe mode. 4 Ways To Boot Into Safe Mode In Windows 10
    Thanks for this link.
    I found that from the sign in page I can use "Shift + Restart" and a few other commands to access safe mode.

    Safe Mode in not part of my Windows 10 BIOS, it was part of BIOS in Windows 8.1
    Safe Mode with networking is a common solution to some virus or malware problems.

    I am wrong Safe Mode was NOT part of Windows 8.1 BIOS. (sorry my bad).

    Windows Safe Mode is not UEFI or BIOS related. It's basically loading 'bare' Windows with only core components and drivers that will allow it to run. Everything else is disabled to troubleshoot issues with software, drivers, hardware, etc.

    Secure boot is enabled or disabled in BIOS.

    Also found this in the Users Manual:

    2. If it is not already enabled, you must enable the F12 Boot Menu:
    1. Press F2 when starting your computer.
    2. Use the left or right arrow keys to select the Main menu.
    3. Press the down key until F12 Boot Menu is selected, press F5 to
    change this setting to Enabled.
    4. Use the left or right arrow keys to select the Exit menu.
    5. Select Save Changes and Exit and press Enter. Select OK to
    confirm.
    88 - Recovery
    6. Your computer will restart.

    Then F12 should bring up the boot menu again. There should be at least rtwo selections, your hard drive and your optical drive and maybe USB.

    SAFE MODE

    How to boot into Safe Mode from the Windows 8/10 installation media or recovery USB flash drive. -> link

    SECURE BOOT

    You can check if Secure Boot option is enabled in the UEFI firmware. Run the following command as administrator from the command prompt.

    powershell confirm-SecureBootUEFI

    The result should be True.

    Microsoft designed Secure Boot to protect the computer from low-level exploits and rootkits and bootloaders. A security process shared between the operating system and Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI, replacing the BIOS), Secure Boot requires all the applications that are running during the booting process to be pre-signed with valid digital certificates. This way, the system knows all the files being loaded before Windows 8/10 loads and gets to the login screen have not been tampered with.

    If a bootloader has infected your computer and it tries to load during the boot-up sequence, Secure Boot will be able to undo all the changes and thwart the attack. Having Secure Boot means it is that much harder for attackers to try to compromise the start up sequence.

    Pressed F2 and under MAIN "F12 Boot Menu is Enabled". When I access F12 the top title is Boot Manager. Under that appears
    Boot Option Menu then below that 1) Windows Boot Manager (WDC WD5000BPVT-22HXZT3) no other option appears.

    In BIOS the top line is : Insyde H2O Setup Utility Rev. 3.7

    Tabs are : INFO MAIN SECURITY BOOT EXIT

    Under the Boot Tab :

    Boot Mode UEFI

    Secure Boot Enabled

    Boot Priority Order
    1) USB HDD
    2) Windows Boot Manager
    3) ATAP | CDROM
    4) HDD
    5) USB FDD
    6) Network Boot - IPV4
    7) USB CDROM
    8) Network Boot - IPV6

    I am not sure what I am asking but what I am seeing is different from your post.
