Please help with bios setup for Idea laptop Windows 10

I need to enable virtualization hence tried to enter bios setup for my laptop. Tried a few options:

 

1. press F2

Does not work. directly goes into windows.

 

2. press novo key. 

This can bring me to the blue screen where i can see a few options including BIOS Setup. However, when i selected this Bios Setup option and pressed enter, the system directly started normal windows .

 

3. use UEFI

I followed the below support article and restarted laptop with UEFI. Again, the laptop straigtly goes into windows after restart, not even displaying the blue screen Bios Setup option.

Please help as i am running out of idea now. If there is another way to enable virtualization without entering Bios, please suggest. Thank you!

I did not as my laptop keyboard is spoiled and i have an extenal key board. But i am able to enter the blue screen which has the Bios setup listed using Novo button, so i guess it's the same.

Try doing a full shutdown ( SHIFT + shutdown) before restarting via the Novo button.
