    how to boot into safe mode without logging on?


    if you can't get into your user account, is there another way to boot to safe mode?

    I think you can do this from windows recovery media, but I was unable to create that. (It didn't like my sandisk flash drive, even though my 3rd party programs have no problem making it into a bootable media, so it seems not to be damaged.) And there is no option for DVD, only flash drive.

    I tried getting into safe mode from a windows 8 recovery CD, but it couldn't do it

    now we can copy and paste commands. That's a great feature.
    this method works like a charm. good thing the tutorial tells you how to undo it, too!
