keystroke boot-up options

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Anybody remember which key it is that you hold down after powering up so that it brings up the startup disk control panel first?

I remember the shift key boots with ext off, and option-apple rebuilds the desktop, but I'm sure there are others... Isn't there also one to bring up the Extensions Manager first?

    If it's the same as with OS X, then it should be the "Option" key.
