    MICROSOFT ARE YOU ACTUALLY LISTENING, OR JUST CLAIMING YOU ARE?

    Same goes for having the safe boot mode come up with just the tapping of F 11.

    Well... I think that in Microsoft are listening... better... reading but seems that we are talking DIFFERENT languages.
    What to say more... good luck Microsoft and please Mr. Ballmer... the day you'll be fired (and I'm pretty sure that you will) DON'T tell us we didn't advice that there was something... ehm... wrong with Win 8, 8.1, 8.X...

    I just set my BCDedit options for legacy mode and F8 brings up Safe Mode. I was going to change it back to GUI mode, but I thought, the hell with it.

    From what I have seen to this point, I don't think it shouldbe called the Start button. Instead it should be called the Appeasement button.
