ZBook X2 G4: How to access boot menu?

ZBook X2 G4
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I thought that accessing the boot menu would be pretty straight forward. However, the device displays the logo and the message "Protected by hp sure start (or something similar)", pressing the usual keys (ESC, F1, F2, F10) doesn't do anything. Next thing that happens is just windows starting.

Is there a desktop app that can change this behaviour? I'd like to change a couple of things, especially enable the hybrid graphics option for better battery life.

Thanks, that worked.

 

I also found that I just need to be really quick if I wanted to use the F10 key.

 

And a third method, which I found would be most pleasing, is a batch file utilizing the "shutdown" command with the "/fw" switch.
