If you ever had issues with your Windows machine, most likely you seen or used the safe mode menu. Safe mode starts Windows in a basic state, using a limited set of files and drivers. It can help you troubleshoot problems on your PC. For example, if the problem doesn't happen in safe mode, you'll know default settings and basic device drivers aren't causing the issue.

There are two versions of safe mode: Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Networking. They're quite similar, but Safe Mode with Networking includes the network drivers and services you'll need to access the Internet and other computers on your network; this will allow you push out an update needed to fix your machine.

Today, I will show you guys how to enter into the Windows 10 safe mode in three ways.
