    I need to get to the BIOS in my computer in order to activate vt-x and when I tried to follow answers like this https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...-vt-x-in/c9203f8a-da57-43be-8c75-cfe43d55cd70
    the "UEFI firmware settings" just wasn't there and I also tried to click on some key while my computer is switching on but the windows is coming very quickly and I am not able to see what key activate the BIOS menu.

    someone suggested in the answers to reinstal windows 10 in order to get the "UEFI firmware settings" (if I understood him correctly) but I don't want to do it and I don't even sure it will work..

    my BIOS version is‏ American Megatrends Inc. 1801, 23/10/2018
    and the BIOS mode is Legacy.

    Is there a more simple and easy way to enable this stupid vt-x without reinstalling windows 10?. and if there isn't another way can I at least do it without losing files/data and without creating a USB media?.

    BIOS access is NOT a Windows issue. BIOS access is controlled by the BIOS (ie: part of the motherboard). Whether or not the motherboard even supports UEFI will depend on the brand/model and age. How to access the BIOS varies by motherboard/BIOS used.

    What is the brand/model of the PC or the brand/model of the motherboard?

    From the bios number and date, I surmise you have an asus ROG board. To access the bios, you hit the either the Del key or F2 during POST. I am going to move this thread to hardware since accessing the bios has nothing to do with windows.
