    Get out of safe mode without password


    Needed to boot in safe mode, used msconfig to set the boot mode. Of course I was not aware my pen number login is wothless so now I am stuck in perpetual safe login screen. My outlook password is in a program on the system which I cannot access.

    Tried shift restart and tried startup settings and press enter, but this does not do a normal boot, just another safe mode. Where is the option for normal boot!?
    ??

    Please help, thanks

    Use the same msconfig > click Boot at top > under Boot options, UN-check "Safe boot" > click OK when done.
    Now restart your computer.

    Does that bring you back to the normal desktop ?

    I cannot understand why they would disable pen login with safe mode, and not at least warn you it is disabled! Is it really that hard to tell 10 to just boot normal!

    Did you try any of the other options with the Shift + Restart? I'm wondering if "Continue and exit to W10" will send you via the normal boot.

    First thing I tried. It seems once you set msconfig to boot in safe mode there is no way tell it to stop unless you can login to the desktop.

    Anyone know if win 7 can read a win win 10 formatted drive? I was thinking of pullling the 10 hd, read it from my 7 system and try and get my outlook password.

    If you have system restore points setup you could try returning your PC to a restore point before you made the msconfig change. This should revert you back to a normal boot.

    Tried that also, you need login to reach it. Would not matter, I checked restore before I did safe mode and there wasnt any I could use.

    OK. This is slightly more complicated but perhaps the only way you will be able to get back. You need to use the Shift + Restart to get back to the advanced startup options and boot into the Command Prompt. You will then need to follow the instructions in Option 3 of the tutorial below to remove safe mode:

    This should work!
