With the release of Windows 8 in 2012, you could no longer by default access the F8 boot menu. However with command prompt, you could actually reverse this and bring back that menu.

COMMAND LINE TO ENABLE BOOT MENU:
bcdedit -set {default} bootmenupolicy Legacy

COMMAND LINE TO DISABLE F8 BOOT MENU:
bcdedit -set {default} bootmenupolicy Standard
