Start Windows 8 PC - hold power button for 5 seconds whilst it's loading Windows - Warning - this comes at risk of corrupting user profile if not windows it's self though Microsoft in all its wisdom has seen fit to remove the F8 accessibility to safe mode. MS seems to get stupider the harder they try - unbelievable!!

Why post something that's not recommended?
A very simple solution to regain F8 safe mode....Go to above tutorials....and look under W8...This will also explain why Microsoft chose to go this way.
