How to Boot Windows 10 into Safe Mode

When you’re having issues with a Windows computer, one of the first steps to troubleshooting is to boot Windows into Safe Mode.

Safe Mode is a special way for Windows to load when there is a system-critical problem that interferes with the normal operation of Windows. The purpose of Safe Mode is to allow you to troubleshoot Windows and try to determine what is causing it to not function correctly. Once you have corrected the problem, then you can reboot and Windows will load normally.

Safe Mode starts your PC with a minimal set of drivers and services. No third-party software or drivers get loaded, and even the built-in Windows stuff is limited to just what’s necessary.

But the old-fashioned way to get into Safe Mode by booting the PC and pressing F8 key at the exact right moment seldom works on PCs running Windows 10. Following technique will:

1. Click the Start Menu button, and then the Power button. Hold down the Shift key when you select Restart.

2. In the resulting, Windows Recovery Environment menu, select Troubleshoot >  Advanced options > Startup Settings.

3. In the Startup Settings window, click Restart button.

4. In the Startup Settings window, press F4 function key to boot Windows 10 into Safe Mode.

Press numbers or function keys F1 through F9 to launch the options on this screen.
