    The Advanced Boot options button does not seem to be under PC Settings anymore, and trying shutdown /r /o returns a "parameter incorrect" error.
    How do you add/remove boot options in Windows 10?

    Thanks for pointing out the typo in my forum post, I assume you *did* take the time to test the "/o" parameter under Windows 10 before pulling out the funny image?

    No problem here; I'm using this:
    Code:
    shutdown -r -o -f -t 00

    It can also work this way :
    Code:
     shutdown /r /o /f /t 00

    yes i tested with exactly your parametser. /r /o and worked.
    I would use (as also tito suggested) -f -r -o -t 0

    Today we get to point out how stupid a person is...

    Go get EasyBCD. Also use the "shutdown /?" command to find the correct syntax.

    The google is strong with this post...

    (OP)
    Today we get the answer to a different question. I am not asking which tools are there to edit the boot menu, I am asking how to access the Windows Boot options screen.

    Your simple google comment also does not apply, I already know the parameters, I am saying it does not work.

    And by the way, I just tested them again, in all the syntaxes proposed here, still getting error 87 the parameter is incorrect.

    The problem with using the built in tools for Windows is that they are often clumsily made or down right horrible.

    Now as for the Windows boot screen if you really want to use the Microsoft way then poke around msconfig. From there switch over to the boot tab which should show you what you wanna see. Now regarding the shutdown command I'm not sure why you need the shutdown -r or any of that as the shutdown for Windows 10 is actually in the Start menu. Somehow Microsoft had the common sense to make it easier to get at lol.

    The manually painful way is to use BCDedit in order to edit the boot menu. I'm not sure why this is necessary but here you go...

    The responsible file seems like its reagent.xml.
    It seems similar to WinREConfig.xml. Mainly allows for recovery images and push button stuff i think. Useful if you want to add a tool or a recovery image on a hidden partition.

    Code:
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' standalone='yes'?>
    <WindowsRE version="2.0">
    <WinreBCD id=""></WinreBCD>
    <WinreLocation path="" id="0" offset="0"></WinreLocation>
    <ImageLocation path="" id="0" offset="0"></ImageLocation>
    <PBRImageLocation path="" id="0" offset="0" index="0"></PBRImageLocation>
    <PBRCustomImageLocation path="" id="0" offset="0" index="0"></PBRCustomImageLocation>
    <InstallState state="0"></InstallState>
    <OsInstallAvailable state="0"></OsInstallAvailable>
    <CustomImageAvailable state="0"></CustomImageAvailable>
    <WinREStaged state="0"></WinREStaged>
    <ScheduledOperation state="4"></ScheduledOperation>
    <OperationParam path=""></OperationParam>
    <OsBuildVersion path=""></OsBuildVersion>
    <OemTool state="0"></OemTool>
    </WindowsRE>

    I seem to remember seeing somewhere on technet about how to add custom factory recovery options...
    Perhaps if you research those, you can see how MS added the TP ones.
