Restart your computer in Safe Mode.

Step 1: When you hit the power button in Windows 8.1 / 10 (through Charms Bar), hold down the Shift key when clicking the Restart button.

Step 2: The next screen will present you with three options. Click Troubleshoot.

Step 3: Next, hit Advanced options followed by Windows Startup Settings from the next screen.

Step 4: Your PC will now be rebooted to enable the advanced parameters, which include Safe Mode as well. Once it restarts, you’ll get nine options whereby the following commands apply:

F4 for Safe Mode

F5 for Safe Mode with Networking

F6 for Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Based on your selection, Windows 8.1 (or Windows 8 or 10 the method applies to both) will boot accordingly.

F5 for Safe Mode with Networking
