    Hi,
    First You shouldnt post this thread here there is a chillout room where we can start a discusstion there but its okay every one makes mistakes.
    okay Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for windows that starts your computer in a limited state so only the basic files and drivers necessary to run windows are started.And when you start safemode a Safe Mode word will appear in the corners of your monitor so you can identify wich windows mode your using right now.
    That's all what i know about "Safe Mode",feel free to correct or add something.

    I will add that Google is the first thing we need to learn ,then the rest is easy .[was for me anyway ,I became a MVP because I could google so well ,lol] just go to google.com and ask away .
    as for safe mode my experience is you will need it very little .
    check the google link ,and happy learning

    And the first thing to learn is Safe Mode in Windows 8 is disabled. There are a few ways to get there but pressing F8 as you normally would does not work, unless .... How to enable the F8 key to start Safe Mode in Windows 8

    Also:

    Windows key + C.
    Settings
    Power
    Hold shift key and click RESTART.
    Click on Advanced Options then Startup Settings.
