Accessing BIOS/GRUB settings has to be the worst UX ever. Is it F1,2,3,7 or 11? Do I tap or hold? Do I start yet? Can I release? Always takes me 20 attempts
Turns out the correct key was Esc, believe it or not 🤦♂️
Hit every possible keys like crazy immediately after pressing power button till something pops up, works every time, highly recommended.
@rubenwardy F5 and F8 were other candidates. 😊
@neildarlow I can't believe F10 isn't higher on the list.
@rubenwardy I've wasted hours of my life missing the bios screen. Even spamming a bunch of keys doesn't catch it.
@rubenwardy *sigh* yes, I always keep these in my mental memory to try:
F2, F8, F10, Del, Esc
@rubenwardy No but I mean, Del is a perfectly reasonable key, right? I mean, we should all use Del and call it day, yeah? Yeah that'd be much better in fact. You can never remember which F* key it is. F* keys are the worst idea. Let's do that. Let's use Del.
