Secure Boot Isn’t Configured Correctly

Sometimes, after upgrading to a newer Windows version, some users find an error message in the lower right corner of the screen that says “Secure Boot isn’t configured correctly”. The error appears to be a system watermark, which you cannot remove by changing the wallpaper.

Therefore, if you see that Secure Boot isn’t configured correctly on your desktop, it may indicate that the Windows Secure Boot feature has been disabled or has not been set up on your PC.

Secure Boot is a security feature available on most motherboards with UEFI firmware enabled. It is a part of Microsoft Windows 8 and higher operating systems. This feature was designed to ensure your device boot using only the software trusted by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
