Do you actually use UEFI boot or do you use "Legacy" = "BIOS" boot? If you don't use UEFI there's no such option to reboot into the UEFI/BIOS menus in Windows. You know that you use UEFI boot if you can see a 100MB sized partition with a text "EFI System" in the Disk Management tool in Windows.

If you do use UEFI, this kind of thing is caused by enabling a "fast boot" option somewhere in the UEFI/BIOS menus. At boot it will then not look for the keyboard and will instead go into Windows immediately. There should be a way to make the UEFI/BIOS boot with its default, slower mode where it will look for the keyboard. I don't know how to trigger this, but what I would try is disconnecting power for the whole PC for something like ten seconds.

If you do not use UEFI, then maybe your problem is that the UEFI/BIOS can't detect your keyboard at boot. Did you change something about that recently? Like, are you using a different keyboard? Or did you connect it to a different USB port? I've seen motherboards where only PS/2 keyboard were guaranteed to work, and USB keyboard were often problematic, especially gaming stuff with "n-key roll-over" over USB.

This keyboard problem idea could of course also hit you when using UEFI boot, so the keyboard not being detected is always something to think about.

Try shutdown /r /f /t 0 /fw at the command prompt, or if you are using an asrock mobo download restart2uefi from their website

When i look in system info, it says my bios is legacy mode.. Is that something I should change? I got it to work by resetting the bios with the jumper , Im not sure what happened. I was always able to get into the bios using the F2 key.. I might have shut off legacy USB in bios, maybe that is what disabled it? Not sure. It seems to be working now after the CMOS clear with the jumper.. I see USB legacy is now enabled by default.. I think someone recommended i turned that off to help trouble shoot some issues with my VR headset.
