Easy guide to boot Windows 8 in Safe Mode using MSCONFIG
Many times, Windows 8 is started in Safe Mode in a way to remove any spyware or troubleshoot and diagnose purposes for such issues. Once you have started your Windows 8 in Safe Mode, you will get access to only those specific programs and files that are needed to run the operating system.
Some actions like connecting to the Internet will become inactive in Safe Mode and a standard video driver will be loaded automatically giving you a washed out look and a possible change in resolution. You can start Safe Mode for your Windows 8 in three ways: Normal Safe Mode, Safe Mode with networking, and Safe with Command Prompt.
Check out the below given steps to boot Windows 8 in Safe Mode using MSCONFIG
- Boot your Windows 8
- Open the run box and to open you can also press Windows key + R and type MSCONFIG in the Run box , press enter (You can find the Windows key between the CTRL and ALT keys on the keyboard with a Windows logo on it.)
- Now, on the MSCONFIG page, click on the Boot tab to open up the options
