Startup in Safe Mode

Reader rating: 5 out of 10


Computer doesn't startup? Do you keep getting errors?

Safe Mode is a very watered-down version of Windows. With it, you will be able to access basic features of Windows to try to diagnose the issue.

Startup in Safe Mode

1. Restart your computer.

2. As the computer is starting, hold down the "CTRL" key.

3. Once Windows begins to start, a menu will appear.

4. Use the keyboard's arrow keys to navigate through this menu. Move to the "Safe Mode" option.

5. Press the "Enter" key.

6. Windows will now start in Safe Mode which you can use to try to change your system back to how it was before the problem.
