How to start windows 7 in safe mode

Applies to windows 7
Start your pc, laptop/or computer in safe mode

Safe mode starts Windows with a limited set of files and computer drivers. Start up installed software do not run in safe mode, and only the basic computer drivers needed to start Windows are installed.

Safe mode is useful for troubleshooting problems with installed software and computer drivers that might not start correctly or that might prevent Windows from starting correctly. If a problem doesn't reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device computer drivers as possible causes. If a recently installed program, device, or driver prevents Windows from running correctly, you can start your pc, laptop/or computer in safe mode and then remove the program that's causing the problem. For more information about troubleshooting problems in safe mode, see Diagnostic tools to use in safe mode.
