How to boot Windows 10 directly to Advanced Startup Options screen

We know how you can boot into the Advanced Startup Options in Windows 10, when you need to troubleshoot some Windows problems. You can hold down the Shift key and then click Restart from the Power Menu in Start. But what if you would like to display the Advanced Starup Options screen every time you boot Windows 10? If you would like to, then this post will show you how you can do it.

The Advanced Boot Options screen lets you start Windows in advanced troubleshooting modes. To access it, you can also start your computer and then keep pressing the F8 key before Windows starts. You will see the Advanced options screen.

Boot Windows 10 directly to Advanced Startup Options

To do this, open Command Prompt (Admin) and run the following command:

bcdedit /set {globalsettings} advancedoptions true

Boot Windows 10 directly to Advanced Startup Options

This will turn on the Advanced Startup Options screen on boot.

In case you wish to turn it off anytime, you may run the following command:

bcdedit /set {globalsettings} advancedoptions false

Restart your computer and you will see the familiar blue Advanced Startup Settings screen load up.

Remember that there is no timer available and to continue to your sign-in screen, you will have to press Enter.

If you’d like the legacy Advanced Boot Options screen to load, run the following command and then reboot:

bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy

You will see the black Boot Options screen, like the one you had in Windows 7 and earlier, load up.

To restore the boot menu to the default, run the following command:

bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy standard

Hope this work for you.
