Yoga 15 Thinkpad. Boot menu. How do I reach it.

I can't believe I can't figure this out. Why do they make it so complicated now? 

 

How to I reach the boot menu from this Yoga 15 Thinkpad??????????????

Usually you just keep tapping F12 (or Fn + F12) fairly rapidly while booting your system up.

That's what I thought too. But I guess not on this machine.

It should be according to the user manual for your system, but it appears that the Boot Device List F12 Option can be disabled in the Thinkpad Setup/BIOS options (see page 69 of the manual linked below), so it just may not be currently enabled on your system (See page 80).

Another possibility:  if the installed OS is Win 8.x or 10 you can't get there on a normal startup.  You should be able to use F12, ENTER, F11, etc on a restart or on startup after a full (SHIFT+shutdown) shutdown.
