i understand the process of holding the shift key while shutting down, and entering safe mode this way, however, i have had some computers that are so infected with viruses that the shutdown procedure takes quite some time which is very annoying,

 

so my question is.....

 

is it possible to enter safe mode while booting (during startup) of windows 8?

Hi,

There is a way to enable the F8 option in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. You can follow this tutorial for it.

No, don't think so.

 

If you have Windows 8 or 8.1 press Start and enter cmd; right click on run as administrator enter the line given in the tutorial.

 

Hope that it helps.
