How to get Safe Mode Back(F8)

Recommended Posts

To get that classic F8 behavior back we need to restore the legacy boot menu policy. To do this, hit the Win + X keyboard combination and launch and elevated command prompt.

 

When the command prompt opens, run the following:

 

bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy

That’s really all there is to it. Now, when your computer boots up, you can mash the F8 key to view the classic Advanced Boot Options.

 

If you want to return the boot menu back to normal, you can use this command:

 

bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy standard
