I note that in one of the Forum articles which covers Windows 10 it says 


  • Boot into SAFEMODE - tap the F8 key repeatedly during boot-up..

​This is not true for Windows 10, is it?  It is not available by default --- I have tried. I understand there is a hack which restores this feature. As it is the simplest way to get to SafeMode can you provide the details here (or point to them)? I to used get SafeMode with F8 when my current machine was W8.1, but I was never able to get SafeMode with Network, a significant handicap. I want to check if that is still true with W10.

By default F8 will not work on Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10, check the following article about accessing Safe Mode on Windows 10.
