Windows 10: Advanced Startup Options - Boot to in Windows 10
Any restart button will do. Just hold the Shift key down when you press Restart.
I did that but it still does not look like the one I posted. It is close but no programs are there in the left panel.
That was from an older build of Windows 10. The Start menu no longer looks like that in build 10041, but this screenshot serves the purpose of the tutorial for now until I get all screenshots updated as needed after each new build release.

Great tutorial - if you can get to the windows login screen! Many of thoose in trouble are thoose who are stuck on black screen after upgrade - please provide tutorial on how to get either the upgrade finished or how to reboot into safe mode.
Microsoft is - in my opinion- stupid! They should have enabled Safe mode in the upgrade so that if something went wrong, then people would have a choice - now many are stuck with a non-functioning system after upgrade and no way to get to safe mode, because there is no option to make an Windows 10 DVD before you have booted into you newly installed windows 10 for the first time and downloaded the DVD creation tool - MS=0 intelligense!
I have spent 25 years of troubleshooting this kind of stupidity!
MS never did it before on older OS's , why would they start now? This is why one should always make an image of their system before doing any kind of upgrade.
Did you read your own answer before posting it? How are you going to get to your image if you can't get into safe mode, most people don't have several pc's like we do. On less you mean, 3part image or one you can get to by recoveryDVD(which most people dont have either)!
You could boot from your Windows 10 installation media to advanced startup using OPTION FIVE in this tutorial.
Afterwards, you could do a system image recovery if you had created a system image before.
I found that if you physically turn off your machine immediately after the cyan windows logo appears (before getting to the log-on screen) two times this brought up the recovery mode, so that might help in the situation you mentioned.

When I first installed the Win 10 Preview, it set up a dual boot (actually triple boot, 3 OS's - Win 7, Win 8.1 and Win 10). One of the Win 10 updates corrupted it. I've tried to fix it by booting with all 3 OS install discs and running...
The same trick from Windows 8/8.1 still works in 10.
Click on Start, click the power icon at the top of the Start Menu.
Hold down Shift and click on Restart.
