My first recommendation would be to go into Settings, Update & Security, Recovery Pane, and use the "Restart Now" button under the Advanced startup section to see if you can choose to get out of Safe Mode via that route. You can get in that way so I'd presume there has to be a mechanism to specify a regular boot. One of the things explicitly noted is the ability to change your startup settings. I don't want to restart at the moment or I'd try it myself to see exactly what's there.

I found a place where I could run system restore, and I did that, but that got me nowhere. I finally was able to get into a command prompt that showed my C drive, and was able to run the msconfig utility from there, and I unchecked the box for Safe Boot, and Windows started normally. Upon getting back to normal startup, I ran msconfig again to make sure that I don't go back into safe mode again, and noticed that under the "General" tab on the utility, I had "Selective Startup" checked, and under that, "Load System Services" and "Load startup items." I tried clicking "Normal startup," because that's what I think I would want, but when I do that, if I go to the "Boot" tab, I see that the "Safe boot" box is now checked, which was what got to this mess in the first place. Why are these two items interconnected? What is going on with the drive labeled "X" that I saw under that one command box earlier?

To stop the computer from starting in Safe Mode press the Windows key and the R key to open the Run box.
When the Run box opens type in msconfig, then click/tap of OK.
When the System Configuration opens remove the check for Safe boot, click on Apply, then OK.
When you restart the computer is will boot normally.
