HP Windows 8.1 Laptop BIOS Setup

I just found out something interesting about my somewhat new HP Windows 8.1 laptop. If I want to get into the BIOS I have to follow a little procedure that does not have to be done on laptops that are not running Windows 8 evidently.

To get into the BIOS I have to do the following:

1. Hold down the <left shift> key will selecting shut down on the computer. (This is to temporarily disable the hybrid boot.)

2. When you push the power button on the laptop start hitting the <esc> key until you get a boot menu.

3. Press <F10> from the menu to get into the BIOS.

Sounds like a lot of work just to get to a BIOS but I will take it.
