Thank you. I'm going to create a separate tutorial for that shortcut, and add it as an option to this one later tonight.
Here it is.

Hello Hastyle, and welcome to Eight Forums.
Unfortunately, you must have a keyboard attached to your PC or device to be able to select an option from the "Startup Settings" menu. Your mouse and touch screen won’t work on the "Start Settings" menu at all.
dam! lol thats ok i was gonna get the keyboard anyways.
You're welcome, but yeah they do really need to let you to be able to use it with a touch screen keyboard.
I have W8.1 on three computers. On one when in Recovery and having selected Advanced start-up what appears after clicking on Troubleshoot on the "Choose an option" screen is "Advanced options" - but only one shows. This is "Start-up settings".
All the other 4 or 5 options which I see on the other computers do not appear. I have not found any reference to this in a web search.
Does anyone have knowledge about this?
The options you have will vary per system a bit depending on if it's an OEM PC or not, and how you booted to Advanced Startup.
How and what did you use to boot to Advanced Startup, and I'll see what I see doing the same?
