This tutorial will show how to both enable and disable the F8 boot menu in Windows 10.
Booting Windows into Safe Mode is the most common method of Troubleshooting Windows problems. But unfortunately, most of the users are missing Windows Advanced Boot Menu as it does not appear even after tapping F8. Microsoft has decided to disable Boot Menu by default to speed up the Windows Booting Process. But that doesn't mean that it has been removed. You can still enable Windows Advanced Boot Menu [F8] just by running a simple dos command.
Advanced Boot screen is the black screen which appears when you keep pressing the F8 button continuously during boot. The Advanced Boot Options include option to choose from normal booting, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with command Prompt and so on. This is done when you want to install a new operating system, you want to format your computer, open the computer in Safe Mode etc. The screen is definitely important and by default it is turned on. You can find it by pressing the F8 button uninterrupted. But if you have fast boot enabled, which is generally the case of Windows 10, you will not be able to find out the Advanced Boot options as the time span will be too small for you to press F8. You must be signed in as Administrator to enable or disable the feature.
