Sadly, you will not be able to access it within the Windows as BIOS has a preboot environment. On a few old computers and the ones who are purposly created to boot slowly, you can press the function key like F1 or F2 at the time you turn on your computer, then you can enter the BIOS mode. 

Nevertheless, the computers that were manufactured in the last 4 years boot Windows 10 very fast and it does not leave the time for the user to press the F key at the time of startup. In order to open BIOS on your Windows 10 computer, below are the steps that you need to perform.
