3 ways to enter Safe Mode on Windows 10 2019

How to safe mode for windows 10

  1. "Summon" the legendary F8 button again

By default on Windows 10 you no longer have access to Safe Mode from the boot screen as on previous versions, but if you want, you can still bring this option back. Right-click on the Start Menu button> select Command Prompt (Admin), press YES if there is a dialog box appear, then type / copy the following command line to paste: bcdedit / set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy and press Enter.

If you do not want to use this option anymore, you also access the cmd application with Admin permission, enter / copy the following command line: bcdedit / set {default} bootmenupolicy standard and press Enter.

  1. Fine-tune the system settings with System Configuration

This way you simply don't have to touch the command line and it is appropriate that you only need to access Safe Mode unexpectedly to remove viruses or remove some stubborn application for example. Press Windows + R key combination, in the window that appears, type msconfig and click OK.

In System Configuration, you switch to the Boot tab, under the Boot Options section, select one of the four available options, including:

  • Minimal: Enter Safe Mode with the minimum number of drivers and services but still use the familiar Windows graphical interface.
  • Alternate Shell: If you are proficient in Command Prompt, you can choose this mode.
  • Active Directory Repair: Enter Safe Mode with access to specific information on the computer, such as hardware devices. If you don't successfully install new hardware, such as Active Directory, Safe Mode will be used to restore system stability by repairing corrupted data or adding data to the directory.
  • Network: Enter Safe Mode with the necessary services and drivers for networking, using the Windows graphical interface.

If you are not fluent or find trouble by doing so, just option Minimal is "enough" with many cases of access to this mode already. After selecting, select Apply and Ok, the machine will ask whether to restart immediately or if the machine will automatically enter Safe Mode the next time you start.

  • Or to make it easier, just hold down the Shift key while pressing Restart in the Start Menu, you can also access this mode.
  • Or another method but extremely useful when your computer cannot boot into Windows, often standing at a certain stage. Now do not rush "twist", you "torture" your machine a little while during the boot process, press and hold the power button to turn off suddenly (or press the reset button if any) about a few times then Windows 10 will automatically run into Advanced Startup mode.

With one of the three methods above, you definitely have access to the Advanced Startup boot screen. Go here to select Troubleshoot> Advanced Options> Startup Settings> Restart. The machine will reboot and show options for Safe Mode for you to use.
