I never built a computer before so i never had to go to the BIOS setting.

If I was playing a game or video editing, and i pause for a second just to go to the BIOS setting to adjust my RAM frequency or OC or something like that, can i go to the BIOS while the game or the video editing program is on ?

so that after the adjustment i can just go back to the desktop to resume what i was doing?

To enter BIOS you must be at the POST screen. However, some Windows utilities allow for certain BIOS changes within Windows. The drawback is, you still need to reboot to have those changes take effect.

Power On Self Test. That is the boot screen. Another way of saying you need to reboot and enter BIOS during the POST.
