#1. I recently enabled the F8 key to enter Safe Mode at startup as shown in the URL below for my Toshiba Satellite Model C75D-B7304 laptop with 64-bit Windows 8.1, an AMD A6 APU, 4G RAM, & 1 TB HD, but when I got there, the keyboard was frozen, & I couldn't use the up or down keys or the enter key, so I had to restart:

#2, Just as an experiment, I tried accessing Safe Mode as shown in the following URL, & my up & down keys & my shift key worked perfectly:

#3. Then I went back & tried accessing Safe Mode by depressing F8 at startup, & the up & down keys & the enter keys were still frozen, so I disabled the F8 option at startup which I had previously enabled as shown in the URL below:

After doing a search for "Win Shortcuts", I was surprised to see so many, but I only saw one that I thought was very important, & that was the "Win" key + the "X" key for the Power Users Menu. Are there any others that are as important as that one?
