You have a plenty of options within the Windows operating system to change the configurations, but there are certain settings that need you to enter in to the BIOS configuration to do the changes. BIOS setting is situated in UEFI firmware which exists outside the Windows OS. For example, if you want to choose which device to boot first, like your internal hard disk or external HDD, you can change the boot order by entering in to BIOS. You can even adjust on how fast your RAM can be accessed and how much voltage should be sent to the CPU.

Over the years, entering into the BIOS configuration has changed from just pressing a key. From the start of UEFI firmware, the fast boot settings now need a different approach. Let�s see what they are.
