Windows 10: Is this Progress

    Is this Progress


    In windows 7 I could display a map of my workgroup networked computers. Windows 10
    does not give me that option. I must use Netgear Genie to do what Windows 10 should do.
    Is the progress? The only way that Windows 10 works is through Explorer where you can see the
    networked computers. No map though!
    Another displeasure is getting into the Safe Mode-not an easy F8 click as before.

    F8 disappeared 'cos boot speeds are much faster and the boot sequence has changed significantly with the introduction of fast startup. It takes about 10s to boot to a lock screen with my SSD- succeeding with F8 would be relatively unlikely.

    Good summary here:
    4 Ways To Boot Into Safe Mode In Windows 10

    You could try:
    Safe Mode - Add to Boot Options in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    This was suggested in Win 8, when the change was introduced - you could check its relevance for '10, but I can't recommend it.
    Enable F8 Safe Mode Boot Menu | Windows 10 Forums

    I'll leave the rest for someone else.

    dalchina, thanks for the input. It works for Windows 10 and now I have the F8 key with all its advantages and no decrease in boot time.

    That feature was mainly for Windows 95, 98, 98se, XP. They removed the Network places when Vista came out.
