When and Why to Use Windows Advanced Startup | #microsoft | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #cybersecurity | #infosecurity | #hacker



Whether you need to access your BIOS, reset your PC, start from an external drive, restore a system image or perform numerous other important boot-related tasks, Windows’ Advanced Startup menu is the place to go, particularly if you are trying to fix a BSOD or other error. You get there by navigating to Start -> Settings -> Update & Security -> Recovery and clicking the Restart Now button. And below we’ll explain all the powerful things you can do from Advanced Startup and when you’d need to do them.

The Warning is For Real: It WILL Restart Your PC

Don’t click the “Restart now” button until you’re good and ready to restart your PC. Why say this? Because as soon as you click that button, there’s no going back. Your PC will restart, and when it does it will present you with the “Choose an option” on-screen menu shown:

On this screen, two of the options are easily explained. The “Continue” option proceeds with a normal Windows boot, as if you’d never used this restart option. The “Turn off your PC” performs a shutdown operation, and leaves your PC inert and turned off. Obviously, you could have done both of those things without ever entering the Windows Advanced Startup menu. Things get more interesting with “Use a device” and “Troubleshoot,” each of which lead to subsidiary menus.
