    Boot into safe mode on windows 8 and windows 10

    windows 10

    Safe mode is the option which is used in troubleshooting windows operating system. In safe mode, computer starts with limited functionality. Windows starts with only the basic files and drivers that are necessary to run windows. So, if you want to troubleshoot your PC then it will be better to boot it into safe mode. In windows versions prior to windows 8,
    people were able to easily turn the PC in safe mode by pressing F8 key. But, when windows 8 came in the market, the scenario changed. Now, F8 key will boot your computer into automatic recovery mode. I will discuss the trick by which you will be able to boot your computer into safe mode in windows 8 and windows 10.

    By system configuration tool (msconfig.exe)

    This method works well in windows 8 and windows 10

    6. Cick on "OK" and "restart" your computer.
    Now, your computer will boot into safe mode.
    After troubleshooting is done, you should stop safe mode. To do so, open "system configuration" by pressing "win+R" key and type "msconfig" in "run" box. Uncheck the "safe boot" option below the "boot" options and click on "OK".
    Now when you will restart your PC, it will open in normal mode.
