Dual Boot

Please tell me what to press on a keyboard to view operating system menu when I turn on a computer?
Before few months I have accidentally press one keyboard button and I see OS selection menu.

Please tell me if you now.

Windows 10 64 bit

Depends on the brand. F11 on some, F8 on some, F12 on some.
Usually there is a display at power on of what key to press to enter the BIOS and what key to press for the Boot menu.

As mentioned by Fireberd, depends on the manufacturer.
Also, fast boot must be disabled to launch Boot Menu.

If you`re talking about the dual boot screen it should come up by itself, then just use the arrow key to choose the OS you want to use and hit enter.

Windows XP

GRUBLoader won't show the menu if only Linux is installed, and WILL show a menu USUALLY if os-prober has detected multiple OS's.

I HAVE however seen NO menu display AFTER multi OS's are in GRUB.

I think Control, or Shift key forces GRUB to display menu, regardless of Linux only, or multi OS's detected. Thereafter, it will display menu every time.
