Entering UEFI from a Windows 8 system

I wanted to boot a Dell Inspiron 14 5000 series laptop (model number 14-5447) from a USB flash drive to perform an image backup of the internal hard disk drive (HDD). I had placed the Clonezilla backup program on a USB flash drive - see Creating a Clonezilla bootable flash drive - and wished to use it to create an image backup of the system's hard disk drive before upgrading the system from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. But, in order to boot from the USB flash drive, I needed to change the Universal Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) settings to allow me to boot the system from the external USB flash drive. The steps to modify the system settings are listed at Entering UEFI from a Windows 8 system. Though these steps were written for this specific system, a similar process can be followed on other systems.
