Open MSCONFIG (use Win+R)

In Boot tab, set to Safe Boot and No GUI boot. Restart and that may go to BIOS.

If no, go to power management settings, turn off Fast Start and restart. This should slow you down enough to enter the BIOS setup.

I have done this on my Windows 10 ThinkPad X230 with Secure Boot and UEFI BIOS.

it depends on your motherboard. the most common methods are to hold F2 or DEL or F8 while booting the computer.
