Windows Central Question

Which Function key or combination of keys would I need to press when I power it on to enter the BIOS / Startup menu?

IF you searched it ...
You'd know that each manufacturer has a different key to access the BIOS.
So, it would depend on your PC / laptop for starters.
Search for that key by model #, manufacturer, etc. - you may find your answer.

Hi! Some PCs will show you which Key to use when your PC boots up from a shut down. You can also find out how by @MDK22 suggestion!
