For many years to date, booting Into Safe Mode has served It's purpose extremely well for troubleshooting purposes, or removing malware due to not being able to boot normally Into the Windows environment. Safe Mode was easily accessed by hitting the F8 key during start up, but all this has changed with Windows 10. As such, In this tutorial, I will show you how to add Safe Mode options to the right-click context menu.
Those who've been utilizing the Windows platform since the good old days of Windows 95, will be well aware of what I'm referring to. Safe Mode Is an excellent utility to run diagnostic tests due to the operating system failing to boot, or removing malicious content, such as trojans and viruses.
As mentioned above, Safe Mode was accessed by simply (and repeatedly) tapping the F8 key when booting up your PC. Windows 10 no longer accommodates this, but Instead has Automatic Repair that attempts to diagnose and fix boot Issues. This has failed me at the best of times, thus prompted me to document this tutorial.
I will demonstrate how to add the Safe Mode options to the right-click context menu, thereby they'll be accessible with a simple click of the mouse- precisely as per the Image above. To achieve this, I'll be using a neat little Registry file, that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry and apply the options thereafter.
I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. Do note, that this only applies when right-clicking on your computer's desktop. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.
Step One:Once you've downloaded the Registry file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice and then double-click the Add Safe Mode.reg file as shown below. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so simply hit Yes.
Step Two:A message will be displayed, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Windows Registry, so hit OK to finalize the process.
Step Three:I've navigated to my computer's desktop, right-clicked on a blank area and as you can see, the Safe Mode setting and It's respective options, are readily available. I can now reboot my PC, by selecting a given option with a simple click of the mouse.
Last Step:In the event you change your mind and wish to remove the Safe Mode options from the right-click menu, double-click on the Remove Safe Mode.reg file and hit Yes.
Final thoughts:I'd say It's safe to assume, that you're quite Impressed with the simplicity of how this method was applied. The good thing about It, Is that It automatically adds the entries to the Windows Registry and Immediately applies the Safe Mode options to the right-click context menu. As a result, It's not susceptible to corrupting the Registry, hence ensures a smooth and hassle-free Implementation.
