How to Start Safe Mode in Windows 10

Start a safe mode in windows 10 pc

Would you have any issue to start safe mode in windows 10.
When your PC has shut down incorrectly or refuses to boot up properly, Safe Mode is your friend.
Safe Mode starts Windows with a limited set of files and drivers - no programs start automatically with Safe Mode, and your PCor laptop won't connect to the network so an infection is unlikely to get worse. This means you can find and solve problems with your PC, without endangering your hardware or data.

Can we access the safe mode using F8 key??

NO. After installing or upgrading to windows 10 you might find out that you’re unable to access the Safe Mode by pressing F8 key during the startup. This can be frustrating especially when you can’t start Windows normallySuch as Windows 7, at the beginning of the boot, you’re able to press the F8 key to access the Advanced Boot Options menu, where you can enable Safe Mode. But on Windows 10, the F8 key doesn’t work any more. No matter how many times you’ve tried. You must be wondering why this happens??? Is it removed from Windows 10???
No.Actually , F8 key is still available to access the Advanced Boot Options menu on Windows 10. But starting from Windows 8, 8.1 in order to have faster boot time, Microsoft has disabled this feature by default. That is to say Windows 10 boots too fast to have any time to let anything interrupt. If you want to use the F8 key to access the Safe Mode, you need to enable the feature manually.

How to enable F8 key to access the safe mode??

As I said in above F8 boot menu feature is disabled on Windows 10 by default. But we can get it work again easily with the Boot Configuration Data (BCD) Edit command. BCD Edit is a tool written to control how the operating system is started. Just follow these steps:

1) On your keyboard, press Windows key + R  at the same time to invoke the run command.
2) Type cmd then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to open an administrator command prompt.
     (Don’t just press Enter or  click OK as that won’t open the command prompt in
     an administrator mode.)

3) Copy the following command and paste it in the Command Prompt. Then on your keyboard, press the Enter key.

4) Reboot your PC. Before the Windows logo appears, press F8 to access the Boot Options menu Then select Safe Mode.

Note: You can get F8 work again only when you’re able to access Windows. If you can’t start Windows normally, you need to use other effective way.
