The process for enabling or disabling Windows 10 safe mode can be a little tricky, but it is not inaccessible to the user. As our guide, activating and terminating the Microsoft operating system support tool is much simpler. See how to enable or disable Windows 10 safe mode.
What is safe mode?
Windows 10 safe mode is a maintenance tool that allows you to run the operating system by loading as few programs as possible. It is useful for isolating problems that certain software may present and that, for some reason, cannot be solved during normal operation.
At the same time, problematic Windows 10 drivers, which may not have been loaded in safe mode, can be isolated and, like other programs, removed by the tool. The only thing is that the process of how to activate and deactivate safe mode is not very simple to do without guidance.
