I am not able to select my Boot Device any more. Esc key does not bring up the boot menu

HP Recommended
Pavilion HPE 372f
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello: I am new here, but here is my problem. I am not able to bring up the boot menu during power up any more. Esc key used to bring up my boot devices, but no longer. Instead the computer boots directly into windows. I can enter Setup during the boot (F10 Key) and re loaded defaults. Boot menu is in the list of items that show up but htting Esc as directed does nothing. 

I would like to boot up the computer from a USB thumb drive. I was in the process of installing FreeNas when things stopped working. Appreciate any help or suggestions.

Try this -- instead of hitting F10, hit F9 -- repeatedly.  That should take you directly into the BIOS Boot Devices menu.
