Windows 8.1 “Safe Mode”: - W8.1 allows one to access the “Recovery” menu after booting up which allows one to select restarting in “Safe mode” but how does one get the PC to boot into Safe Mode from the OFF state? If, for example, the PC will not boot into Windows and hangs? In this case the “Recovery” option is not available and pressing F8 or Shift+F8 after switching ON doesn’t work (I’ve tried). I know how to use bootable USBs and images (I have all this organised) so I am not talking about that method of recovery. I only want to know how to boot into Safe Mode from the OFF state. Thanks in advance for any help.
- Windows 8.1 64 bit
