    Starting Windows 10 Home in Safe Mode


    1. I've followed the steps given in https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/12376/windows-10-start-your-pc-in-safe-mode but can get no further than the penultimate 'Startup Settings / Restart to change Windows options such as ... Enable Safe Mode'.


    Clicking on 'Restart' takes me to a'BitLocker recovery' screen with a tiny 'ESC/keyboard' ikon in the top right corner of the screen. Clicking on it produces a virtual keyboard and, when I click on'Enter', an input bar with what I assume is my 32-digit alpha-numeric recovery code.


    When I try to enter it in the input bar, using the virtual keyboard, I find only the number keys are effective. Whilst the letter and function keys Shift, Caps, Ctrl, etc react when tapped, no letters appear in the input bar, nor do the function buttons have any effect.



    2. I'm doing this on my Surface 3 tablet no keyboard in an attempt to complete a clean reinstallation of Windows 10 Home, in accordance with https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4000735/windows-10-reinstall.


    I can get as far as item 3 of 'Connect the installation media ...' on page 6 but, when I select my USB Drive, I get a'Surface' screen and rotating gear ikon, followed by a tiny, completely unresponsive'Windows Setup' window containing 'Language', 'Time & currency format' and'Keyboard' drop-down bars and a 'Next' button.


    There's no go back option. I just have to turn my tablet off using the power button.

    :)

    Unable to Start in Safe Mode Win10

    I understand that as repeating the basic problem. Is that what you mean? I can't tell you why- some sort of corruption- hence all the steps I'm suggesting. Please try each in turn.

    The first are to check for basic forms of corruption and so proceed onwards in order.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community forum.

    Have you tried all the above steps suggested by Sangeeta Sarkar on September 13, 2015.

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

    • Are you trying to login the Microsoft account or the Local account in safe mode?
    • Did you try with only safe mode or safe mode with networking?
    • What is the critical error you are getting?

    If you are using Windows 10. To go to safe mode you have to follow the below steps.

    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.

    • Click on Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart and follow the onscreen steps to go to
      Safe Mode with networking and check if you are able to login.

    [*]
    Please get back with more information, we will be glad to help you further.
