Is there a way to ALWAYS have a boot menu selection on every startup

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I’m trying to find out if there is a way to always have a boot menu selection for which drive I wish to boot from when I start my computer, I have a gaming pc currently and wanted to take my ssd from my work computer and attach it to my current gaming pc, but didn’t want to have to manually enter the boot selection menu myself every time I start my computer.



i wanted to just be able to start my pc, then click either my gaming os or my work os then load In every time I start my pc

I believe the boot mechanism you want is bcdedit


The basics here:

Microsoft - Adding Boot Entries


There are a number of articles on the subject on the 'net.

For example, use your favorite browser and search for information.

Start with (for example) search phrase: add boot option to bcdedit


Change the search phrase to narrow your search.


An older but much used article explains how to add the "Safe Boot" option to Windows 10:

Boot Screen >  How to Add Safe Mode to Boot Options in Windows 10
