How to Boot to UEFI Firmware Settings from inside Windows 10
InformationUEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) is a standard firmware interface for PCs, designed to replace BIOS (basic input/output system). This standard was created by over 140 technology companies as part of the UEFI consortium, including Microsoft. It's designed to improve software interoperability and address limitations of BIOS.
This tutorial will show you how to boot directly to your motherboard's UEFI firmware settings from inside Windows 10.
NoteThis only applies if your PC's motherboard has a UEFI firmware chip instead of a BIOS chipset.
This only applies if Windows 10 was installed using UEFI, and not legacy BIOS (CSM).
