  1. Laptop safe mode

    I could not get sfc to work, so i switched ny laptop to safe mode. Now nobody can dign into it because it requires the original password, not PIN, and we can't remember this.

    Using troubleshooting to get safe mode with networking doesn't work because the laptop can o ly connect over wifi.

    Also, i cannot use troubleshooting to create a temporary admin account, because clicking on "command prompt"causes the system to ask for my password. Can i recover the laptop or is it now useless?

    Thanks a million Microsoft for doing causing MORE trouble than the original problem (Yes i am being sarcastic)

    I would suggest you to provide some information to help you better.

    If you are able to go to login screen in normal mode try the below steps to go to safe mode with networking.

    • At the login screen click on the power symbol.

    • Hold SHIFT + Click Restart.

    • After restarting your system, select the Troubleshoot option.

    • Select advanced options under
      Troubleshoot screen.

  3. Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10  

    I am stuck in Safe Mode in spite of following all the suggested steps to go back to Normal Startup - Like opening file location of msconfig.exe & running as Administrator. The computer I am trying to get out of safe mode has just been updated from Windows 7.

    Stuck in safe mode in windows 10

    Safe mode is intended to help fix most, if not all problems within an operating system, it's not good if we got stuck on it. To correct this, we suggest that you follow the steps below to exit out of Safe mode:

    • Open Run command by pressing Windows key + R
      keys on the keyboard and type msconfig in the command box and press
    • Under General tab, put a check on Normal Startup option.
    • Reboot the system and check if the changes are effective.

    Let us know if you are able to exit out of Safe mode with these steps.
