Enabling Legacy Support / Disabling Secured Boot

HP Spectre x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello there,

I just recently flashed Tails (An operating system) onto my USB Drive, on which I was able to boot my Computer on, pulling the stick out again after shutting down, and continuing to use my PC on Windows as of before as if nothing happened.
Now I want to do the same for my HP Laptop, but the problem is that the USB doesn't show up when I open the boot system. People told me to either disable Secure Boot or enable Legacy Support in my BIOS. Since I don't have any experience with this, I had a few questions about it:
If I disable Secure Boot, does this have any other effects on my Windows Operating System, that I use right now, such as not being able to go back to using Windows like nothing happened after I'd shut down Tails? Same question for enabling Legacy Support, since when I tried to enable it, it gave me the warning that I might not be able to boot Windows again afterward.
Thank you for your help,
Best Regards
