Below you can find the instructions on how to easily boot the Samsung Galaxy S10 in Download Mode. Note that the guide will work for other S10 different models, too.

The Galaxy S10 Download Mode allows users to update their phones manually without the need of waiting for Samsung to roll out the updates in their regions. When in Download Mode your Galaxy S10 requires your PC to have the Samsung USB drivers installed on it, and the Odin app to run on it.

Usually the Download Mode is only used to install new official updates by advanced users. Samsung is rolling out updates in stages and these are sent to phones over-the-air, but this process will take a while before it reaches all users. Samsung launches new updates for all their phones almost monthly, and if you're one that doesn't want to wait until the files are sent over-the-air, then you should learn how to install these manually.

Now that you know all that you can continue with the guides below. The guide and instructions below should be working for all the older Samsung Galaxy devices, so you shouldn't worry in case you have found this post by mistake.
