  1. How to access boot menu with F11 on keyboard?


    Suddenly my keyboard has not been turning on fast enough to press F11 when my PC is turning on. and I want to boot my USB containing Windows OS. Is there anyway I can do to access boot menu without pressing F11 when it’s powering on.

  2. F11 does not work

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand the difficulties you are facing with the F11 key not working as it should be. In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below.



    • What is the Windows 10 version and Build installed? (Type
      winver in Windows search/Run command)
    • What is the make and model of the PC?
    • Did you try F11 along with FN key on the keyboard?
    • Was there a major change or an update on your system, prior to which you weren't facing this issue?
    • Are you trying to use F11 for full screen function or any other function?


    However, we would suggest you to perform these steps.



    Uninstall and Reinstall the drivers.

    1. Press Windows + X, select
      Device Manager
      .
    2. Expand Keyboard device.
    3. Right click on all the listed devices, then select
      Uninstall device.
    4. Check the box beside Delete the driver software for this device.
    5. Click Ok and restart the PC.
    6. Then check you still have the issue.


    We await your response.

    Boot menu question

    Hey guys I'm trying to run windows repair on my computer by booting my computer from the vista CD, problem is the boot menu doesn't detect my USB keyboard. Are there any options in bios that will make the mobo detect my keyboard in boot menu? I don't have an analog keyboard on hand so this problem is quite annoying. *Bang Head :banghead:

  4. How to access boot menu with F11 on keyboard?

    No startup boot menu

    Hello Kimoefat,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    As an initial recommendation, I would suggest you to access the System configuration utility and check if the Operating System installation path for Ubuntu exists. To do so, follow the below steps.

    • Type msconfig in the search bar and select System Configuration from the search results.
    • Select the boot tab in the System configuration console to check if the installation path for Ubuntu exists.
    If it exists, next logical step is to check if the boot menu time out has been set to 0, which results in Boot menu not showing up.

    The boot menu time-out determines how long the boot menu is displayed before the default boot entry is loaded. It is calibrated in seconds. To change the boot menu time-out, use the Bootcfg
    /timeout switch. Valid values are from 0 through 999. You cannot use Bootcfg to set an indefinite time-out.

    You can run the following Run command line to set the boot menu time-out accordingly. To do so, follow the below steps.


    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt

    • Type in the following command: bootcfg /timeout 10

      timeout 10
      will set the time frame to 10 seconds
    However, if the Boot path for Ubuntu does not exist in the boot menu of System Configuration utility, I would suggest you to check if the Ubuntu is overridden by the Windows installation or if the Ubuntu installation files are corrupted.

    Hope the above information is helpful. If you need further information, feel free to write to us and we would be happy to help you.

    Thank You.
