Windows 8 and Windows 7 Safe Modes

Safe mode in Microsoft windows is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only basic features and functions will work in windows safe mode. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words Safe Mode appear in the corners of your monitor to identify which Windows mode you’re using. Sometimes some features or functions will not work on windows; then turning on safe mode is the best option. Safe mode is useful for troubleshooting problems with programs and drivers that might not start correctly or that might prevent Windows from starting correctly. If a problem doesn’t reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes. Safe Mode gives you a low-resolution, visually ugly, feature-limited Windows environment useful for diagnostic and repair purposes. How To Boot Into Safe Mode In Windows 8.1
