Bios Setup screen - how to bypass on boot

NUCStarter

Hello there

I support my father-in-law who is 95 yrs old and has his new Intel Nuc computer.  He is in a retirement home and I support his computer remotely.   I have it setup so that it is very simple for him to use.  He turns it on and it boots right to the opening screen of windows.  He has lots of tabs setup in his browser so he can go directly to the websites he uses.

Everything worked well until I did a firmware / bios upgrade today.  Now instead of booting directly to windows 10  - the screen shows a list of options (grey lettering) for bios setup etc.

He can press esc on the keyboard and the system bypasses this screen and continues on to windows.

Question is how to stop this screen from showing up on the boot of the machine - so that his experience is streamlined.  Please leave any suggestions

Thanks for your help.

Boot to the bios with F2

Use F9 to reset defaults.

Use the BOOT tab, select SECURE BOOT, ENABLED

F10 to save

 

That is it.

No applicable, but why are you in legacy mode?

Did you do the steps I provided?

Hello AlHill (Doc)

I will try this when I visit my father-in-law.  His retirement home has a lot of restrictions especially visits so it will take a couple of days to try out your steps - can't do this remotely.

Thanks for you support

Checked in the bios and secure boot is enabled.

Any other ideas?
