Last Resort to Boot into Safe Mode in Windows 8 or Newer

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

I haven’t experimented with Windows 8 very much so far, but apparently, starting with Windows 8 it’s now a lot more difficult (but not impossible) to restart in Safe Mode …

Microsoft optimized the boot process of its Windows 8 operating system in a way that it is booting faster than previous versions of Windows. A side-effect of this is that it is difficult to get the operating system to load Safe Mode. The mode is useful to troubleshoot the operating system. You can use it for example to undo changes or uninstall software that you have recently installed on the system.
