I hope I have posted in the correct forum since I only have a question.
 
I do not have a problem with my PC, I just have a question should I have a problem in the future.
 
I have windows 10 home version 1709
 
It is my understanding that to run System File Checker or Dism, they must be run with an elevated command prompt.
 
If you can not boot into windows normally and are forced to boot into safe mode with command prompt, is THAT command prompt an elevated command or just a user command?

Well...I think that the simple answer would be to try it.

 

I don't see anything about safe mode which would prevent a user from achieving elevated command prompt in the same way that a user normally would...but I could be wrong.

 

Elevated Command Prompt.

Thank you Hamluis for your reply.
 
I didn't want to try something before asking a professional.
 
I rebooted into safe mode with command prompt from the sign in window, ran System File
Checker and it worked perfectly.
 
Thank you again.

:thumbup2:, I'm no "professional", just a longtime user :).

 

Happy computing :).
