  1. I tried getting into safe mode for a few days pressing different keys. Eventually I pressed shift and F10 simultaneously and it worked! I hope this helps others.

  2. I’m so fucking angry right now… my computer kept downloading updates and installing them, every single fucking time they failed and would revert back to the previous windows. Now something new kept downloading called window update installed, and I kept uninstalling it cause I knew that the installation would fail like the other 5 times I tried it. WELL GUESS FUCKING WHAT, My laptop downloaded it again, and then installed it NOW MY COMPUTER IS FUCKED AND STUCK IN AN UPLOAD REBOOT. FUCK WINDOWS AND FUCKING WINDOWS 10, they have seriously fucked up my computer and they need to pay for it to be fixed!!!!

  3. Please can I have some help? I done this pressed 5 to access network in safe mode then screen then went to HP logo & then nothing…what has gone wrong please? Thanks for any reply

  4. Hi there, i think what people are trying to to find out is how to get into SAFE MODE without the computer starting up in the first place, as that is when you would most likely need it, i have tried the BCDEDIT arrangment from the windows power shell and it says the SET command is invalid, if you do it from the normal CMD prompt it does it so you can use the F8 key, it confirms it, only problem is it still doesn't work….bit of a puzzler….from Fred in Essex UK.

  5. I started a safe mode were it wont show the password bar on startup its just a black screen with the 3 login options at the bottom right which dont do much i have tried holding shift while restarting and i dont get any promps of course im not even logged in

  6. Fuck i hate win10 with a passion. Shift+restart doesnt even work anymore it just takes you to some bullshit thing on the pc where there is no option to go into safe mode

  7. Thank you so much! I didn't know how to boot up safe mode before this video. I needed to boot safe mode because i downloaded Avast antivirus. I know it's dumb, but it wasn't me (kind of)! I wanted to download qtorrent, but it downloaded me shitty antiviruses in the process. So it disabled Windows defender. I needed to force delete it in safe mode and it worked! I'm so grateful to you and another youtuber.
