Start Safe Mode in Windows 10:
Safe mode is a Windows mode in which the computer starts up with as few system resources as possible (drivers and software). The intention is that the technicians can search for the cause of the problem. Because sometimes booting in safe mode and adjusting a few small settings can be enough to get the computer back to normal. However, something has changed in Windows 10. In previous versions of Windows, you could enter safe mode by pressing the F8 button during startup, in Windows 10 it now goes as follows.
After three errors, the computer automatically goes to the recovery menu. If this does not happen and you do get to your login screen, press and hold the shift button on your keyboard. While holding it down, click the on and off button at the bottom right and choose; Restart. You may now release the shift button. The computer will then restart and you will have to choose an option. Go for:
Troubleshooting / Advanced options / Startup Settings / Restart
After starting up, the computer will again show a number of options. You can choose between the normal safe mode (F4) or the safe mode with network options (F5). The latter means nothing more than a choice of whether you can use the computer on the Internet while logged in safe mode.
Safe Mode From Windows 10:
The other way to get into Windows 10 safe mode is not for us as our computer won’t boot. But for anyone who comes here on the search result, booting safe mode windows 10, I just want to mention it.
To get into Windows 10 safe mode, you need to prepare your system somewhat: Using the keyboard shortcut WIN + R, type MSConfig and hit enter.

The System Configuration starts now. Select the Startup tab and place a checkmark on the Safe Mode startup. There is also the option to activate the network if you think you need the Internet in safe mode. Now when you restart the Windows 10 computer you will automatically enter safe mode. Remove the checkmark or choose a normal startup to restart in Windows 10 as usual after a restart.
