Hi, this is Michael E. Callahan Dr. File Finder and welcome to your Butterscotch.com tutorial on how to start in safe mode. Now safe mode is a way of starting windows to stops all the drivers and extra things from being loaded. So often very handy to solve problems you can start in the safe mode.
First we’re going to click start, turn off computer and the dialog comes up we’re going to click restart. Our windows is going to shut down and what we’re going to do is that when window start the boot we’re going to tap the F8 function key to bring up a boot menu that comes with the windows, so I let windows shutdown here.
Bear in mind this is a virtual machine so you’re going to see a reference to VMware but the same principles apply and we are want to tap that F8 key. So here we are now after tapping the F8 key this windows boot menu comes up and it’s asking to start windows normally what we’re going to do is just up arrow to safe mode, hit enter and again what happens in safe mode is that windows load without loading all of the drivers and things that can sometimes cause conflicts.
So it’s a great way to find the problem or to uninstall a piece of software that’s given you a problem that you're having trouble with in normal mode and be able to uninstall it in safe mode and then reboot it into the normal mode again. So here we are we've loaded that into the safe mode pops up a little window telling us we’re in safe mode to special diagnostic mode that enables you to fix problems which we already talk about. To work in the safe mode looks like yes.
So this is boot enough with the safe mode when you're done you just click start turn off that appear restart and go back into normal mode and that’s all there's to it.
