Hello!

Can we enter BIOS easily? Because the boot time is so fast that i can almost never go in BIOS. Like a way to reboot in BIOS from Windows? I am a bit bored to boot + F2 again and again until it works...

Thanks

Yup.

Swipe down to Charms > Settings > Change PC settings > Update and Recovery > Recovery > Advanced Startup (Restart Button) > Troubleshoot > Advanced Settings > UEFI Firmware Settings > Restart and it will boot into your BIOS.

fyi. If you hold the 'shift' key while you restart Windows 8/8.1, it will take you to the same 'Advanced Startup' screen, so you can skip all those steps in Windows to get there if you prefer.
