Win10 recovery mode is difficult to use a command to return to the boot F8 function

Windows 10’s Safe Mode is certainly much more advanced, but for many older users, it’s a real hassle to get into Safe Mode. Many people still miss the days when Windows 7 would boot up and press F8 to enter the safe mode menu. In fact, under Windows 10, we still have a way to use this “old” and simple way – just one command, you can let Windows 10 back to the previous way of operation.


First, click the Start menu, and then type “CMD” to match the Command Prompt mode, note that this time to right-click on the Command Prompt option, in the pop-up menu, select “Run as administrator”.


Open the command prompt in administrator mode and enter the following command: bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy Enter to execute, if it is correct, it will prompt “operation completed successfully”.


At this point, if you restart your computer, press the F8 key before booting (because it is difficult to grasp the best timing, so it is recommended to click the F8 key in quick succession), the computer will display the “Advanced Boot Options” interface as shown in the figure, select “Safe Mode” to Enter, everything is so familiar.


If you don’t need this feature, you can also restore the original Windows 10 Safe Mode. Here again, you need to use the command prompt in administrator mode and enter the command bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy standard to enter.


Some people will say, this method is certainly good, but if the temporary encounter problems, did not have time to execute commands in the system need safe mode? I also provide a method here, first, use a USB flash drive class of Windows 10 system installation disk boot boot system, and then come to the system installation welcome screen.

At this point, press Shift + F10 key combination to call out the command prompt interface, and then enter bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy enter. This will exit the installation screen again, reboot and press F8.
