simple.b Whenb tryingb tob troubleshootb yourb computerb thereb areb severalb waysb tob bootb theb
Windowsb 10b intob safeb modeb Ib haveb discovered.b Ib feelb likeb theb bestb andb easiestb wayb isb tob
clickb onb theb Windowsb button,b holdb theb shiftb andb clickb restart,b onceb theb troubleshootb optionsb

stepb Ib hadb tob useb inb theb pastb whenb Ib haveb neededb tob bootb theb Windowsb 10b intob safeb mode.b
Thereb haveb beenb timesb inb theb thatb myb computerb wasb notb operatingb normally.b Ib couldb notb
diagnoseb theb problem,b sob Ib wouldb gob inb andb bootb Windowsb 10b intob ab safeb mode.b Thenb thereb
hasb beenb ab timeb Ib haveb installedb ab newb program,b andb itb hasb overriddenb anotherb program.b Ib
couldb notb getb itb tob workingb right.b Afterb researchingb theb differentb waysb tob bootb Windowsb 10b
intob safeb mode,b Ib haveb realizedb thatb thereb areb ab fewb differentb options.b Someb ofb theseb optionsb
areb easierb andb ab littleb moreb convenientb tob useb thanb others.b Theb firstb wayb tob bootb Windowsb 10b
intob safeb modeb isb byb usingb theb systemb configurationb tool.b Thisb isb ab fairlyb simplyb wayb inb
whichb youb enterb msconfig.exeb intob theb runb dialogueb box.b Ab personb canb alsob bootb inb safeb
modeb usingb keyb combination.b Thisb isb whereb youb hitb theb powerb buttonb andb thenb pressb andb
holdb Shiftb keyb onb yourb keyboard,b andb thenb clickb Restart.b Thisb willb bringb youb tob ab menub
whereb youb willb chooseb theb troubleshootb option,b thenb advancedb optionsb andb lastb youb canb bootb
intob safeb mode.b Theb lastb optionb thatb Ib foundb aboutb isb actuallyb bootingb Windowsb 10b intob safeb
modeb fromb theb windowsb downloadb discb orb theb Windowsb 10b USBb stick.b Ib believeb thatb itb isb
possibleb thatb theb safeb modeb beingb bootedb willb carryb overb andb keepb theb displayb settingsb onceb
youb exitb it.b Ifb thisb doesn'tb workb thenb youb mightb haveb tob changeb theb PC'sb settings.b Thankb youb
everyoneb forb yourb thoughtsb onb thisb topic.b Whenb troubleshootingb yourb computer,b thereb areb
variousb waysb tob bootb theb Windowsb 10b intob safeb mode.b Safeb modeb refersb tob theb inbuiltb
featureb ofb troubleshootingb thatb helpsb inb disablingb theb unnecessaryb programsb asb wellb asb
driversb duringb theb bootingb process.Oneb ofb theb popularb waysb tob bootb Windowsb 10b intob safeb
modeb isb throughb systemb configuration.b Youb needb tob gob tob theb systemb configurationb panel,b
chooseb theb bootb option,b thenb onb theb safeb bootb option,b whichb willb enableb theb systemb tob bootb
intob safeb mode.b Youb willb alsob haveb tob chooseb fromb theb additionalb optionsb likeb minimal,b
alternateb shell,b activeb directoryb repair,b andb networkb (Rathbone,b 2018).b Afterb choosingb theb
preferredb option,b youb haveb tob clickb onb applyb andb thenb ok.b Theb systemb configurationb willb
thenb askb whetherb youb wantb tob restartb theb systemb orb not.b Selectb restart,b andb theb processb willb
beb initiatedb immediately.Anotherb methodb ofb bootingb Windowsb 10b intob safeb modeb isb byb
tapping.b Simply,b byb tappingb theb functionb keyb F8,b youb canb reachb theb safeb mode.b Itb willb
enableb youb tob makeb theb selectionsb forb theb safeb modeb andb startb theb processb .b Yetb anotherb
meansb ofb bootingb Windowsb 10b intob theb saveb modeb isb byb usingb theb advancedb start-upb option.b
Allb theseb processesb canb helpb inb diagnosingb theb problemb andb correctingb yourb systemb
efficiently.b Thereb areb ab fewb differentb waysb ib willb discuss,b someb ofb whichb mayb notb beb viableb
givenb thisb uniqueb case.Youb canb pressb theb windowsb +b lb keyb onb theb keyboardb tob openb settings,b
ifb thisb doesb notb work,b youb canb selectb theb windowsb icon,b gob tob settings,b selectb updateb andb
security,b recovery.b Underb advancedb startb upb youb selectb restartb now.b Onceb theb PCb bootsb backb

settings,b restart.b Onceb itb finishesb restartingb youb willb thenb pressb 4b orb F4b tob gob intob safeb mode.b
Youb canb alsob getb safeb modeb byb doingb itb thisb way,b whichb isb theb wayb ib wouldb dob itb inb thisb
case.Onb theb windowsb signb inb screen,b pressb andb holdb theb shiftb keyb whileb youb holdb power,b
afterb yourb pcb restartsb youb willb chooseb theb optionb tob troubleshoot,b advancedb options,b startupb

researchingb differentb waysb tob bootb theb Windowsb 10b intob safeb modeb andb Ib foundb thatb theb bestb
wayb tob isb tob Clickb onb theb Windowsb button,b thenb holdb Shiftb andb clickb restart,b thenb clickb theb
troubleshootb optionsb andb thenb gob tob advancedb options,b afterb goingb tob advancedb optionsb clickb

theb bootb optionsb areb displayedb onb theb screenb yourb computerb willb gob intob Windowsb 10b safeb
mode.b Ib thinkb thatb ifb Ib hadb tob chooseb ab wayb tob dob itb Ib wouldb executeb thisb wayb also.b Seemsb
likeb theb easiestb wayb tob putb theb computerb intob safeb mode.b Ib haveb alwaysb thoughtb thatb thereb
wasb onlyb oneb wayb tob bootb ab computerb butb afterb researchingb Ib foundb thatb thereb areb numerousb
ways.b Ib alsob didb notb knowb thatb youb couldb changeb theb settingsb onb yourb computerb inb theb safeb
modeb bootb setting.b Ib learnedb ab lotb byb researchingb theb insb andb outsb ofb theb Safeb Modeb bootb
menu.b Ifb youb haveb alreadyb triedb changingb theb Colorb Calibrationb andb restartingb theb computer,b
yetb itb isb stillb notb workingb properly,b thenb tryb launchingb intob Safeb Mode,b then:
Launchingb Safeb Mode:
Pressb theb powerb key
Holdb downb theb shiftb keyb andb clickb Restart.
Clickb theb optionb Troubleshootb andb thenb Advancedb options.
Gob tob “Advancedb options”b andb clickb Start-upb Settings.
Underb “Start-upb Settings”b clickb Restart.
Theb relevantb optionsb forb bootingb inb Safeb Modeb areb numbers,b 4,5,b orb 6.
Numberb 4-b Enableb Safeb Mode

Ib alwaysb startb troubleshootingb usingb theseb simpleb networkb troubleshootingb stepsb tob helpb
diagnoseb andb refineb theb issue.b Becauseb itb developsb ab successfulb scenariob forb theb computer.
1. Checkb theb hardware.b Whenb you’reb beginningb theb troubleshootingb process,b checkb
allb yourb hardwareb tob makeb sureb it’sb connectedb properly,b turnedb on,b andb working.b Ifb ab
cordb hasb comeb looseb orb somebodyb hasb switchedb offb anb importantb router,b thisb couldb
beb theb problemb behindb yourb networkingb issues.b There’sb nob pointb inb goingb throughb
theb processb ofb troubleshootingb networkb issuesb ifb allb youb needb tob dob isb plugb ab cordb in.b
Makeb sureb allb switchesb areb inb theb correctb positionsb andb haven’tb beenb bumpedb
accidentally.
2. Next,b turnb theb hardwareb offb andb backb onb again.b Thisb isb theb mainstayb ofb ITb
troubleshooting,b andb whileb itb mightb soundb simplistic,b oftenb itb reallyb doesb solveb theb
problem.b Powerb cyclingb yourb modem,b router,b andb PCb canb solveb simpleb issuesjustb
beb sureb tob leaveb eachb deviceb offb forb atb leastb 60b secondsb beforeb youb turnb itb backb on.
3. Useb ipconfig.b Openb theb commandb promptb andb typeb “ipconfig”b (withoutb theb quotes)b
intob theb terminal.b Theb Defaultb Gatewayb (listedb last)b isb yourb router’sb IP.b Yourb
computer’sb IPb addressb isb theb numberb nextb tob “IPb Address.”b Ifb yourb computer’sb IPb
addressb startsb withb 169,b theb computerb isb notb receivingb ab validb IPb address.b Ifb itb startsb
withb anythingb otherb thanb 169,b yourb computerb isb beingb allocatedb ab validb IPb addressb
fromb yourb router.
4. Tryb typingb inb “ipconfigb /release”b followedb byb “ipconfigb /renew”b tob getb ridb ofb yourb
currentb IPb addressb andb requestb ab newb one.b Thisb willb inb someb casesb solveb theb problem.b
Ifb youb stillb can’tb getb ab validb IPb fromb yourb router,b tryb pluggingb yourb computerb straightb
intob theb modemb usingb anb ethernetb cable.b Ifb itb works,b theb problemb liesb withb theb router.
5. Useb pingb andb tracert.b Ifb yourb routerb isb workingb fine,b andb youb haveb anb IPb addressb
startingb withb somethingb otherb thanb 169,b theb problem’sb mostb likelyb locatedb betweenb
yourb routerb andb theb internet.b Atb thisb point,b it’sb timeb tob useb theb pingb tool.b Tryb sendingb
ab pingb tob ab well-known,b largeb server,b suchb asb Google,b tob seeb ifb itb canb connectb withb
yourb router.b Youb canb pingb Googleb DNSb serversb byb openingb theb commandb promptb
andb typingb “pingb 8.8.8.8”;b youb canb alsob addb -t”b tob theb endb (pingb 8.8.8.8b -t)b tob getb itb
tob keepb pingingb theb serversb whileb youb troubleshoot.b Ifb theb pingsb failb tob send,b theb
commandb promptb willb returnb basicb informationb aboutb theb issue.
6. Youb canb useb theb tracertb commandb tob dob theb sameb thing,b byb typingb “tracertb 8.8.8.8”;b
thisb willb showb youb eachb step,b orb “hop,”b betweenb yourb routerb andb theb Googleb DNSb
servers.b Youb canb seeb whereb alongb theb pathwayb theb errorb isb arising.b Ifb theb errorb comesb
upb earlyb alongb theb pathway,b theb issueb isb moreb likelyb somewhereb inb yourb localb
network.
7. Performb ab DNSb check.b Useb theb commandb “nslookup”b tob determineb whetherb there’sb
ab problemb withb theb serverb you’reb tryingb tob connectb to.b Ifb youb performb ab DNSb checkb
on,b forb example,b google.comb andb receiveb resultsb suchb asb “Timedb Out,”b “Serverb
Failure,”b “Refused,”b “Nob Responseb fromb Server,”b orb Networkb Isb Unreachable,”b itb
mayb indicateb theb problemb originatesb inb theb DNSb serverb forb yourb destination.b (Youb
canb alsob useb nslookupb tob checkb yourb ownb DNSb server.)
Ib wasb checkb aroundb forb ab littleb bitb justb tob seeb whatb theb easiestb wayb tob bootb safe.b Ib cameb crossb
fewb fewb ofb them.b But,b allb ofb themb prettyb muchb soundsb theb sameb .so,b hereb ab fewb differentb
