Windows safe mode

Not open for further replies.


How do you enter into windows safe mode. There have been some large amount of of defender notification about something trying to access my files and i would like to know how to isolate and remove it without any harm to my data


I believe that this is done by clicking on the restart option in the power menu while holding shift, then select troubleshoot > advanced options > change startup settings
Then the machine reboots and give you a menu, from memory option 5 is the one you want for safe mode but it should tell you which one to select.
