"START WINDOWS 8 IN SAFE MODE"
In win 8.1 I do not have and cannot find "advanced startup" in "settings". My settings are "PC Settings" which comprise -
pc and devices
search and apps
time and language
ease of access
update and recovery
and at the very bottom of the page and separated from the above by several inches is "control panel"
under which of the above will I find "advance startup"?,
I only have about 4 minutes to locate and select after startup before the computer freezes and I have to shut it off and restart again.
I am moderately familiar with computer systems and have changed HD and reloaded an OS in the distant past. I have not maintained nor advanced in computer tech. My knowledge base, as limited as it was, ended iwith win XP. I am also at the stage in life where memory is fleeting and I have difficulty in recalling the exact nomenclature of parts and functions.
