Safe Mode in Windows®
Are you curious to know about the usage of Safe Mode in Windows operating systems?
Windows Safe Mode is the better way of booting up your Windows operating system in order to run administrative and diagnostic tasks on your installation. When you select the Safe Mode option, then operating system loads with minimum applications. This mode of operating is intended for troubleshoot and run diagnostics on your system. Windows Safe Mode loads basic video drivers so your programs may look different than normal. Safe Mode is a better method to remove all the issues which interrupt the normal working of the Windows operating systems. The main aim of Safe Mode is to allow you to troubleshoot Windows and try to determine the root cause of the problem. Once you have fixed the problem, then you can reboot and Windows will load normally.
