It's also why you use the controls the OS gives you, which Windows 10 does and always has, for preventing Windows 10 from updating drivers:

The only other thing I can suggest is using the hard power down by holding down the power button, doing so two times before the system even boots, and Windows should boot into recovery mode. You may be able to use a restore point if system protection is on.

Ralston18, that's a great idea if the ports exist on the machine. A lot don't have them anymore.

You could also try, How to Boot or Repair Windows 10 using the Installation Media, if recovery mode won't work.

You should have USB control of the keyboard prior to Windows booting, so you should be able to hit whatever you hit to get into UEFI/BIOS to change boot order.

Booting off of the install media uses the drivers from it, so your keyboard and mouse should work.
i dont know if i am allowed to post links but i am going to try this method first https://www.maketecheasier.com/reset-group-policy-settings-windows10/

There's nothing wrong with posting links to external references. Sometimes they help others and other times, like this, you want others to review what you intend to do.

I quickly skimmed, but I must have missed something there. It seems you have to boot into Windows (as in your installed Windows) to do what's documented, and the problem is once your installed Windows loads you have no keyboard or mouse.
