The Windows 11 operating system offers multiple ways for the users to access the Advanced Startup Options for the system. It can be accessed through Settings, Quick Link, Command Prompt, using a USB media, or Automatic Repair.
The “Advanced Startup options” is a recovery environment (WinRE or Windows RE) that allows you to troubleshoot, diagnose, and fix most problems while the OS is not running. This feature comes in handy when you want to troubleshoot a problem or configure a specific setting that isn’t possible to do when Windows 11 is running, and this is when it comes to the rescue.
In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how you can access the Windows 11 Advanced Startup options on your computer through Settings.
