    Need to remove old windows 7 safe boot screen on startup

    I have a old windows 7 safe mode boot screen that migrated over to windows 10.
    I works on windows 10 but I don't need it any more so I want to get rid of it.
    I just don't want to mess up in removing it...
    I'm using this tutorial... Can't get rid of the dual-boot option on start-up - any thoughts? - Windows 7 Help Forums

    if you open cmd prompt as admin
    type bcdedit /delete {the identifier string of safe mode}

    from your image you highlighted the area you see the identifier string left click and hold your mouse on the { then drag to the } let go of mouse then right click the highlighted string

    then type bcdedit /delete {right click the copied string will appear} press enter
    to verify
    type bcdedit press enter
    you should no longer see the windows safe mode section

    Thanks Guys... Got rid of the windows 7 safe mode entry but the screen still shoes on the start up...
    Now it is just showing windows 10...
    Is there a way to get rid of the screen completely... I don't need the screen because windows 10 is the only OS on this pc... and safe mode is working with f8 key...
    If I get rid of:
    Windows Boot Manager
    identifier {bootmgr}
    device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume1
    description Windows Boot Manager
    locale en-US
    inherit {globalsettings}
    default {current}
    resumeobject {c4b44845-44a0-11e5-ac59-8cbb353a5a55}
    displayorder {current}
    toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
    timeout 5
    displaybootmenu Yes

    bcdedit /delete {bootmgr}
    Will the screen be removed completely....,

    I see you have a timeout of 5 seconds set to show the OSs at startup.

    You can use the tutorial below to uncheck that option or set it to 0 (zero) to stop it.
