Windows 11: How to check Secure Boot Configuration

This is a quick and dirty blog post about checking Secure Boot via registry. UEFI Secure Boot is a requirement for running Windows 11.

Graphical User Interface

Press CTRL + R. Type regedit and navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ SecureBoot \ State

0 = Disabled

1 = Enabled

Secure Boot Enabled Device


Open PowerShell or PowerShell ISE.

Copy the code and run it.

Get-ItemProperty `
-Path hklm:\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecureBoot\State ` | 
Select-Object UEFISecureBootEnabled
Secure Boot Enabled Device


If this property displays 0, you must enable UEFI Secure Boot in your computer’s BIOS. There may be other ways, I would talk to the respective manufacturer.
