Accessing the Boot Screen in Windows 10

I recently needed to install Linux alongside Windows 10, and discovered that accessing the boot screen has become a bit more involved that just punching the F1 key on startup. There are two ways to get there as described by Microsoft.

From the settings screen:

  1. Select the Start button, then choose Settings .
  2. Select Update & security > Recovery.
  3. Under Advanced startup select Restart now.
  4. After your PC restarts to the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings > Restart.
  5. After your PC restarts, select a startup setting by pressing the corresponding number.

From the sign-in screen:

  1. On the sign-in screen, hold the Shift key down while you select Power > Restart (in the lower-right corner of the screen).
  2. After your PC restarts to the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings > Restart.
  3. After your PC restarts, select a startup setting from the list of options by pressing the corresponding number on your keyboard.
