BIOS menu never shows up

Hey, so over the summer I built a budget gaming PC.  It was my first build, so I'm a newbie. I used AMD Ryzen 3 2200g, Asrock AB350M-HDV, 12gb Ram,  Silicon Power 256gb SATA SSD, 1Tb Western Digital 7200 RPM HDD, a cheap case, and an EVGA 450w PSU. Anyways, when I start my computer, it refuses to boot into the Bios screen. If I try, I hear a beep, and then nothing happens. If I don't try, it skips the ASROCK logo, and boots right into Windows. So the MOBO/computer still works works fine, (in fact, I'm typing this on it right now) The clock is always off, and I cant enter the Bios menu to overclock the RAM, or enable virtualization. I think it might need a new CMOS battery. Does anyone agree? Also, if I replace the battery, would it still boot fine?

So when you try to get into the bios by spamming the delete key?

No, I hit the F2 key when the computer starts. I hear a beep.. and then nothing. The screen stays off. Minutes go by. Still nothing. Then I restart, and it immediately boots into Windows, with no option to go into the Bios.When I first built the computer, for a brief second, I saw ASROCK on the screen, with an option to go into the BIOS menu. Now it skips that, and I am not sure why.

Probably your fast boot. Boot into windows and hold shift when you hit restart.

I just tried that. Nothing happened. What exactly is that supposed to do?
