How Boot in Safe Mode on Windows 8

Back in the days when our Windows was slow or crashing we used to press F8 during boot and it would take us to something called “Safe Mode”, which is the minimum set of programs loaded just enough for windows to function. But if you try to do this in Windows 8, it does not work. There is no access to Safe Mode pressing F8. So, how to do it?

Just type “msconfig” in the start menu and when you get to this screen choose these options.


Additionally, by doing this, it allows you to perform a selective boot where you can disable which services should or shouldn’t be started.

Also it is great for PowerShell with enough power to do remote access to someone else’s computer, since you can’t remotely press F8 on other machines.
