How Restart only Windows and not Bios

Friday, October 05, 2007 Posted by Aman Jain

When restarting Windows, you don't always need to go through the BIOS initialisation and POST.

1. Click Start > Shut Down to bring up the Shut Down Windows dialog box.

2. Select Restart.

3. Hold down the [Shift] key as you click on Ok. This will restart only Windows.
This is particularly useful when you change some registry entries or a few system settings
