Afterzz conductingzz myzz researchzz I'vezz foundzz somezz wayszz tozz bezz easierzz tozz bootzz Windowszz
10zz intozz safezz mode.zz Thezz quickestzz andzz easiestzz wayzz Izz discoveredzz iszz tozz Clickzz thezz
Windowszz button,zz thenzz holdzz shiftzz andzz clickzz Restart,zz afterzz thezz troubleshootzz optionszz
appearzz clickzz onzz it,zz nextzz proceedzz tozz advancedzz options,zz thenzz clickzz Startzz Upsetting.zz
Afterzz you'vezz clickedzz thezz startzz upsettingzz youzz willzz thenzz needzz tozz clickzz onzz thezz restartzz
button.zz Oncezz completedzz yourzz computerzz willzz thenzz gozz intozz Windowszz 10zz Safezz mode.zz
Anotherzz possiblezz wayzz tozz enterzz Windowszz 10zz safezz modezz iszz byzz combinationzz ofzz keys.zz
Tozz enterzz safezz mode,zz enterzz thezz powerzz buttonzz andzz holdzz thezz shiftzz keyzz onzz yourzz
keyboardzz thenzz hitzz restart.zz Azz menuzz willzz appearzz offeringzz thezz troubleshootzz optionzz whichzz
youzz willzz thenzz hitzz andzz thenzz gozz tozz advancedzz options.zz Oncezz youzz enterzz advancedzz
optionszz youzz mayzz thenzz enterzz WIndowszz 10zz safezz mode.zz Otherzz wayszz arezz easierzz thanzz
others,zz however,zz itzz dependszz onzz whosezz completingzz thezz task.zz Somezz mayzz preferzz morezz
complicatedzz wayszz thanzz others.zz Personallyzz Izz thinkzz thezz keyzz combinationzz makeszz itzz
quickerzz andzz easierzz tozz completezz afterzz tryingzz itzz azz fewzz times.zz Butzz tozz someonezz whozz haszz
neverzz donezz itzz beforezz thezz firstzz optionzz iszz morezz simple.zz Whenzz tryingzz tozz troubleshootzz
yourzz computerzz therezz arezz severalzz wayszz tozz bootzz thezz Windowszz 10zz intozz safezz modezz Izz
havezz discovered.zz Izz feelzz likezz thezz bestzz andzz easiestzz wayzz iszz tozz clickzz onzz thezz Windowszz
button,zz holdzz thezz shiftzz andzz clickzz restart,zz oncezz thezz troubleshootzz optionszz comezz upzz clickzz
onzz it,zz thenzz gozz tozz advancedzz options,zz thenzz clickzz startzz upsetting,zz oncezz youzz clickzz thezz
startzz upsettingzz youzz willzz needzz tozz clickzz onzz thezz restartzz afterzz thezz bootzz optionszz arezz
shownzz onzz thezz screen,zz yourzz computerzz willzz gozz intozz thezz windowszz 10zz safezz mode.zz Atzz
leastzz thesezz arezz thezz stepzz Izz hadzz tozz usezz inzz thezz pastzz whenzz Izz havezz neededzz tozz bootzz thezz
Windowszz 10zz intozz safezz mode.zz Therezz havezz beenzz timeszz inzz thezz thatzz myzz computerzz waszz
notzz operatingzz normally.zz Izz couldzz notzz diagnosezz thezz problem,zz sozz Izz wouldzz gozz inzz andzz
bootzz Windowszz 10zz intozz azz safezz mode.zz Thenzz therezz haszz beenzz azz timezz Izz havezz installedzz azz
newzz program,zz andzz itzz haszz overriddenzz anotherzz program.zz Izz couldzz notzz getzz itzz tozz workingzz
right.zz Afterzz researchingzz thezz differentzz wayszz tozz bootzz Windowszz 10zz intozz safezz mode,zz Izz
havezz realizedzz thatzz therezz arezz azz fewzz differentzz options.zz Somezz ofzz thesezz optionszz arezz
easierzz andzz azz littlezz morezz convenientzz tozz usezz thanzz others.zz Thezz firstzz wayzz tozz bootzz
Windowszz 10zz intozz safezz modezz iszz byzz usingzz thezz systemzz configurationzz tool.zz Thiszz iszz azz
fairlyzz simplyzz wayzz inzz whichzz youzz enterzz msconfig.exezz intozz thezz runzz dialoguezz box.zz Azz
personzz canzz alsozz bootzz inzz safezz modezz usingzz keyzz combination.zz Thiszz iszz wherezz youzz hitzz
thezz powerzz buttonzz andzz thenzz presszz andzz holdzz Shiftzz keyzz onzz yourzz keyboard,zz andzz thenzz
clickzz Restart.zz Thiszz willzz bringzz youzz tozz azz menuzz wherezz youzz willzz choosezz thezz
troubleshootzz option,zz thenzz advancedzz optionszz andzz lastzz youzz canzz bootzz intozz safezz mode.zz
Thezz lastzz optionzz thatzz Izz foundzz aboutzz iszz actuallyzz bootingzz Windowszz 10zz intozz safezz modezz
fromzz thezz windowszz downloadzz disczz orzz thezz Windowszz 10zz USBzz stick.zz Izz believezz thatzz itzz
iszz possiblezz thatzz thezz safezz modezz beingzz bootedzz willzz carryzz overzz andzz keepzz thezz displayzz
settingszz oncezz youzz exitzz it.zz Ifzz thiszz doesn'tzz workzz thenzz youzz mightzz havezz tozz changezz thezz
PC'szz settings.zz Thankzz youzz everyonezz forzz yourzz thoughtszz onzz thiszz topic.zz Whenzz
troubleshootingzz yourzz computer,zz therezz arezz variouszz wayszz tozz bootzz thezz Windowszz 10zz intozz
safezz mode.zz Safezz modezz referszz tozz thezz inbuiltzz featurezz ofzz troubleshootingzz thatzz helpszz inzz
disablingzz thezz unnecessaryzz programszz aszz wellzz aszz driverszz duringzz thezz bootingzz
process.Onezz ofzz thezz popularzz wayszz tozz bootzz Windowszz 10zz intozz safezz modezz iszz throughzz
systemzz configuration.zz Youzz needzz tozz gozz tozz thezz systemzz configurationzz panel,zz choosezz thezz
bootzz option,zz thenzz onzz thezz safezz bootzz option,zz whichzz willzz enablezz thezz systemzz tozz bootzz
intozz safezz mode.zz Youzz willzz alsozz havezz tozz choosezz fromzz thezz additionalzz optionszz likezz
minimal,zz alternatezz shell,zz activezz directoryzz repair,zz andzz networkzz (Rathbone,zz 2018).zz Afterzz
choosingzz thezz preferredzz option,zz youzz havezz tozz clickzz onzz applyzz andzz thenzz ok.zz Thezz systemzz
configurationzz willzz thenzz askzz whetherzz youzz wantzz tozz restartzz thezz systemzz orzz not.zz Selectzz
restart,zz andzz thezz processzz willzz bezz initiatedzz immediately.Anotherzz methodzz ofzz bootingzz
Windowszz 10zz intozz safezz modezz iszz byzz tapping.zz Simply,zz byzz tappingzz thezz functionzz keyzz F8,zz
youzz canzz reachzz thezz safezz mode.zz Itzz willzz enablezz youzz tozz makezz thezz selectionszz forzz thezz safezz
modezz andzz startzz thezz processzz .zz Yetzz anotherzz meanszz ofzz bootingzz Windowszz 10zz intozz thezz
savezz modezz iszz byzz usingzz thezz advancedzz start-upzz option.zz Allzz thesezz processeszz canzz helpzz
inzz diagnosingzz thezz problemzz andzz correctingzz yourzz systemzz efficiently.zz Therezz arezz azz fewzz
differentzz wayszz izz willzz discuss,zz somezz ofzz whichzz mayzz notzz bezz viablezz givenzz thiszz uniquezz
case.Youzz canzz presszz thezz windowszz +zz lzz keyzz onzz thezz keyboardzz tozz openzz settings,zz ifzz thiszz
doeszz notzz work,zz youzz canzz selectzz thezz windowszz icon,zz gozz tozz settings,zz selectzz updatezz andzz
security,zz recovery.zz Underzz advancedzz startzz upzz youzz selectzz restartzz now.zz Oncezz thezz PCzz
bootszz backzz upzz youzz thenzz selectzz thezz optionzz tozz 'troubleshoot'zz thenzz youzz willzz gozz tozz
advancedzz options,zz startzz upzz settings,zz restart.zz Oncezz itzz finisheszz restartingzz youzz willzz thenzz
presszz 4zz orzz F4zz tozz gozz intozz safezz mode.zz Youzz canzz alsozz getzz safezz modezz byzz doingzz itzz thiszz
way,zz whichzz iszz thezz wayzz izz wouldzz dozz itzz inzz thiszz case.Onzz thezz windowszz signzz inzz screen,zz
presszz andzz holdzz thezz shiftzz keyzz whilezz youzz holdzz power,zz afterzz yourzz pczz restartszz youzz willzz
choosezz thezz optionzz tozz troubleshoot,zz advancedzz options,zz startupzz settings,zz restart.zz Thenzz
youzz willzz presszz 4zz orzz F4zz tozz gozz intozz safezz mode.zz Afterzz Izz waszz donezz researchingzz
differentzz wayszz tozz bootzz thezz Windowszz 10zz intozz safezz modezz andzz Izz foundzz thatzz thezz bestzz
wayzz tozz iszz tozz Clickzz onzz thezz Windowszz button,zz thenzz holdzz Shiftzz andzz clickzz restart,zz thenzz
clickzz thezz troubleshootzz optionszz andzz thenzz gozz tozz advancedzz options,zz afterzz goingzz tozz
advancedzz optionszz clickzz startzz upzz settings,zz afterzz clickingzz startzz upzz settingszz underzz startzz
upzz settingszz clickzz onzz restartzz afterzz thezz bootzz optionszz arezz displayedzz onzz thezz screenzz yourzz
computerzz willzz gozz intozz Windowszz 10zz safezz mode.zz Izz thinkzz thatzz ifzz Izz hadzz tozz choosezz azz
wayzz tozz dozz itzz Izz wouldzz executezz thiszz wayzz also.zz Seemszz likezz thezz easiestzz wayzz tozz putzz thezz
computerzz intozz safezz mode.zz Izz havezz alwayszz thoughtzz thatzz therezz waszz onlyzz onezz wayzz tozz
bootzz azz computerzz butzz afterzz researchingzz Izz foundzz thatzz therezz arezz numerouszz ways.zz Izz alsozz
didzz notzz knowzz thatzz youzz couldzz changezz thezz settingszz onzz yourzz computerzz inzz thezz safezz
modezz bootzz setting.zz Izz learnedzz azz lotzz byzz researchingzz thezz inszz andzz outszz ofzz thezz Safezz
Modezz bootzz menu.zz Ifzz youzz havezz alreadyzz triedzz changingzz thezz Colorzz Calibrationzz andzz
restartingzz thezz computer,zz yetzz itzz iszz stillzz notzz workingzz properly,zz thenzz tryzz launchingzz intozz
Safezz Mode,zz then:
Launchingzz Safezz Mode:
Presszz thezz powerzz key
Holdzz downzz thezz shiftzz keyzz andzz clickzz Restart.
Clickzz thezz optionzz Troubleshootzz andzz thenzz Advancedzz options.
Gozz tozz “Advancedzz options”zz andzz clickzz Start-upzz Settings.
Underzz “Start-upzz Settings”zz clickzz Restart.
Thezz relevantzz optionszz forzz bootingzz inzz Safezz Modezz arezz numbers,zz 4,5,zz orzz 6.
Numberzz 4-zz Enablezz Safezz Mode
Numberzz 5-zz Enablezz Safezz Modezz withzz Networking
Numberzz 6-zz Enablezz Safezz Modezz withzz Commandzz Prompt
Youzz canzz choosezz withzz thezz functionzz keys
Openzz Runzz Commandzz (Windowszz buttonzz +R)
Azz dialogzz boxzz willzz openzz typezz "msconfig"
Locatezz andzz selectzz thezz Bootzz tabzz andzz selectzz Safezz withzz Minimalzz aszz anzz option.
Restartzz Computerzz
Hopefully,zz thezz issuezz getszz resolvedzz byzz then.zz Inzz doingzz researchzz Izz havezz foundzz otherzz
methodszz priorzz tozz thiszz one,zz Izz havezz notzz hadzz thiszz issuezz inzz thezz pastzz sozz Izz amzz notzz veryzz
knowledgeablezz onzz howzz tozz resolvezz itzz sozz Izz didzz learnzz azz goodzz bitzz sincezz Izz didn'tzz knowzz
anythingzz before.zz Goingzz fromzz windowszz 7zz tozz windowszz 10zz iszz stillzz somezz gettingzz usedzz
tozz withzz thezz wayzz thezz softwarezz works.Whenzz youzz bootzz intozz Safezz Modelzz inzz Windowszz
10,zz thezz operatingzz systemzz loadszz azz minimalzz userzz interface,zz withzz onlyzz thezz essentialzz
serviceszz andzz driverszz neededzz forzz itzz tozz function.zz Thiszz modezz makeszz itzz easyzz tozz
troubleshootzz problemszz becausezz itzz doeszz notzz loadzz thingszz thatzz canzz makezz Windowszz
crash.zz Ifzz youzz dozz notzz wantzz tozz readzz thezz largezz articlezz withzz plentyzz ofzz instructions,zz youzz

Izz alwayszz startzz troubleshootingzz usingzz thesezz simplezz networkzz troubleshootingzz stepszz tozz
helpzz diagnosezz andzz refinezz thezz issue.zz Becausezz itzz developszz azz successfulzz scenariozz forzz thezz
computer.
1. Checkzz thezz hardware.zz Whenzz you’rezz beginningzz thezz troubleshootingzz process,zz
checkzz allzz yourzz hardwarezz tozz makezz surezz it’szz connectedzz properly,zz turnedzz on,zz andzz
working.zz Ifzz azz cordzz haszz comezz loosezz orzz somebodyzz haszz switchedzz offzz anzz
importantzz router,zz thiszz couldzz bezz thezz problemzz behindzz yourzz networkingzz issues.zz
There’szz nozz pointzz inzz goingzz throughzz thezz processzz ofzz troubleshootingzz networkzz
issueszz ifzz allzz youzz needzz tozz dozz iszz plugzz azz cordzz in.zz Makezz surezz allzz switcheszz arezz
inzz thezz correctzz positionszz andzz haven’tzz beenzz bumpedzz accidentally.
2. Next,zz turnzz thezz hardwarezz offzz andzz backzz onzz again.zz Thiszz iszz thezz mainstayzz ofzz ITzz
troubleshooting,zz andzz whilezz itzz mightzz soundzz simplistic,zz oftenzz itzz reallyzz doeszz solvezz
thezz problem.zz Powerzz cyclingzz yourzz modem,zz router,zz andzz PCzz canzz solvezz simplezz
issuesjustzz bezz surezz tozz leavezz eachzz devicezz offzz forzz atzz leastzz 60zz secondszz beforezz
youzz turnzz itzz backzz on.
3. Usezz ipconfig.zz Openzz thezz commandzz promptzz andzz typezz “ipconfig”zz (withoutzz thezz
quotes)zz intozz thezz terminal.zz Thezz Defaultzz Gatewayzz (listedzz last)zz iszz yourzz router’szz
IP.zz Yourzz computer’szz IPzz addresszz iszz thezz numberzz nextzz tozz “IPzz Address.”zz Ifzz yourzz
computer’szz IPzz addresszz startszz withzz 169,zz thezz computerzz iszz notzz receivingzz azz validzz
IPzz address.zz Ifzz itzz startszz withzz anythingzz otherzz thanzz 169,zz yourzz computerzz iszz beingzz
allocatedzz azz validzz IPzz addresszz fromzz yourzz router.
4. Tryzz typingzz inzz “ipconfigzz /release”zz followedzz byzz “ipconfigzz /renew”zz tozz getzz ridzz ofzz
yourzz currentzz IPzz addresszz andzz requestzz azz newzz one.zz Thiszz willzz inzz somezz caseszz
solvezz thezz problem.zz Ifzz youzz stillzz can’tzz getzz azz validzz IPzz fromzz yourzz router,zz tryzz
pluggingzz yourzz computerzz straightzz intozz thezz modemzz usingzz anzz ethernetzz cable.zz Ifzz
itzz works,zz thezz problemzz lieszz withzz thezz router.
5. Usezz pingzz andzz tracert.zz Ifzz yourzz routerzz iszz workingzz fine,zz andzz youzz havezz anzz IPzz
addresszz startingzz withzz somethingzz otherzz thanzz 169,zz thezz problem’szz mostzz likelyzz
locatedzz betweenzz yourzz routerzz andzz thezz internet.zz Atzz thiszz point,zz it’szz timezz tozz usezz
thezz pingzz tool.zz Tryzz sendingzz azz pingzz tozz azz well-known,zz largezz server,zz suchzz aszz
Google,zz tozz seezz ifzz itzz canzz connectzz withzz yourzz router.zz Youzz canzz pingzz Googlezz
DNSzz serverszz byzz openingzz thezz commandzz promptzz andzz typingzz “pingzz 8.8.8.8”;zz youzz
canzz alsozz addzz -t”zz tozz thezz endzz (pingzz 8.8.8.8zz -t)zz tozz getzz itzz tozz keepzz pingingzz thezz
serverszz whilezz youzz troubleshoot.zz Ifzz thezz pingszz failzz tozz send,zz thezz commandzz
promptzz willzz returnzz basiczz informationzz aboutzz thezz issue.
6. Youzz canzz usezz thezz tracertzz commandzz tozz dozz thezz samezz thing,zz byzz typingzz “tracertzz
8.8.8.8”;zz thiszz willzz showzz youzz eachzz step,zz orzz “hop,”zz betweenzz yourzz routerzz andzz
thezz Googlezz DNSzz servers.zz Youzz canzz seezz wherezz alongzz thezz pathwayzz thezz errorzz iszz
arising.zz Ifzz thezz errorzz comeszz upzz earlyzz alongzz thezz pathway,zz thezz issuezz iszz morezz
likelyzz somewherezz inzz yourzz localzz network.
7. Performzz azz DNSzz check.zz Usezz thezz commandzz “nslookup”zz tozz determinezz whetherzz
there’szz azz problemzz withzz thezz serverzz you’rezz tryingzz tozz connectzz to.zz Ifzz youzz performzz
azz DNSzz checkzz on,zz forzz example,zz google.comzz andzz receivezz resultszz suchzz aszz
“Timedzz Out,”zz “Serverzz Failure,”zz “Refused,”zz “Nozz Responsezz fromzz Server,”zz orzz
“Networkzz Iszz Unreachable,”zz itzz mayzz indicatezz thezz problemzz originateszz inzz thezz DNSzz
serverzz forzz yourzz destination.zz (Youzz canzz alsozz usezz nslookupzz tozz checkzz yourzz ownzz
DNSzz server.)
Izz waszz checkzz aroundzz forzz azz littlezz bitzz justzz tozz seezz whatzz thezz easiestzz wayzz tozz bootzz safe.zz
Izz camezz crosszz fewzz fewzz ofzz them.zz But,zz allzz ofzz themzz prettyzz muchzz soundszz thezz samezz .so,zz
herezz azz fewzz differentzz wayszz tozz accesszz safezz mode.
1.zz Settings
Fromzz thezz desktop,zz clickzz onzz thezz Startzz button,zz thenzz clickzz onzz Settings.
Selectzz Updatezz &zz Securityzz >zz Recovery.
Underzz Advancedzz Startup,zz selectzz Restartzz Now.
Afterzz thezz devicezz restarts,zz you'llzz bezz promptedzz withzz azz listzz ofzz options.zz Selectzz optionzz 4zz
tozz bootzz tozz Safezz Mode.zz Ifzz internetzz accesszz iszz required,zz selectzz optionzz 5zz tozz bootzz tozz Safezz
Modezz Withzz Networking.
2.zz Logonzz screen
Atzz thezz logonzz screen,zz holdzz thezz Shiftzz keyzz downzz andzz clickzz onzz thezz onscreenzz powerzz
buttonzz >zz Restart.
Uponzz thezz devicezz restarting,zz youzz willzz bezz promptedzz tozz choosezz anzz option.zz Clickzz onzz

Thezz devicezz willzz restartzz azz secondzz time,zz thiszz timezz displayingzz azz listzz ofzz options.zz Selectzz
optionzz 4zz orzz 5zz tozz bootzz tozz Safezz Modezz orzz Safezz Modezz Withzz Networking,zz respectively.
Supposezz azz userzz haszz selectedzz azz combinationzz ofzz foregroundzz andzz backgroundzz colorszz thatzz
makeszz itzz impossiblezz tozz readzz thezz screenzz andzz correctzz thezz displayzz settings.zz Bootingzz
Windows®zz 10zz intozz Safezz Mode,zz whichzz loadszz VGAzz modezz withzz basiczz displayzz settings,zz
iszz azz possiblezz solution.
Researchzz wayszz tozz bootzz Windowszz 10zz intozz Safezz Mode.

Whenzz thezz thezz menuzz popszz upzz youzz willzz thenzz clickzz restart.Nextzz youzz needzz tozz interruptzz
thezz normalzz bootzz processzz ofzz thezz Windowszz 10.zz Itzz needszz tozz bezz inzz defaultzz inzz thezz
Automaticzz repairzz mode,zz whichzz willzz helpzz youzz getzz tozz safezz mode.zz Beforezz itzz finisheszz
loadingzz Windowszz 10zz youzz mightzz havezz tozz keepzz thezz powerzz buttonzz pressedzz forzz atzz leastzz
4zz secondszz tozz forcezz thezz powerzz off.zz Whenzz Windowszz 10zz enterszz thezz repairzz modezz thezz

orzz thezz F4zz keyzz onzz yourzz keyboardzz tozz bootzz intozz minimalzz safezz mode.zz Presszz 5zz orzz F5zz
tozz bootzz intozz safezz modezz withzz networking.zz Orzz youzz canzz presszz 6zz orzz F6zz tozz gozz intozz
safezz modezz withzz commandzz prompts.zz Thezz threezz categorieszz thatzz youzz canzz startzz yourzz
computerzz inzz safezz modezz arezz fromzz azz blankzz orzz blackzz screen,zz thezz settingszz menuzz andzz
screenszz orzz fromzz thezz signzz inzz screen.zz Allzz havezz theirzz ownzz wayzz tozz getzz tozz safezz modezz
bootingzz butzz willzz allzz endzz withzz thezz samezz resultzz thankfully.zz Forzz thezz settingszz screenzz youzz
canzz eitherzz presszz thezz windowszz keyzz inzz combinationzz withzz Izz orzz presszz thezz windowszz keyzz
byzz itselfzz andzz navigatezz throughzz thezz settingszz tozz recoveryzz underzz updatezz andzz security.zz
Youzz presszz restartzz nowzz andzz afterzz youzz getzz thezz options,zz youzz gozz tozz troubleshootzz
