How to Create Password for BIOS

I have the ASUS TUF GAMING Z790-PLUS WIFI Motherboard.

The manual is silent on this, and I have gone and looked inside BIOS but cannot find where to do this.  I have done this on other computers, so it is just the mechanics of how to do it with this version of BIOS.

I want to create two passwords:

First one is a password to get into BIOS.

Second  password is commonly referred to as a Power On Password.  Basically I want the system to ask for this passoword when the power is turned on (or during a reboot) where it will not boot up or go into the Boot Menu (F8) without entering this password.

As I said, I have done this on other computers (HP, Lenovo, and Acer) but I can't figure it out on this one.  So rather than trial and error,  I thought I would ask here.  If someone could provide step by step instructions, it would be appreciated.

Never mind, I found it.  I didn't realize there are more BIOS options below the bottom of the page, so once I realized that, I scrolled down and found the Security option easily, which is where I found the two passwords I want to set up.
