In this message, we see what safe mode is in Windows and what the different types of safe mode are – like safe mode, safe mode with network, and safe mode with command prompt and what they mean.

Most Windows users are familiar with Safe Mode because it is often necessary when you need to diagnose or troubleshoot Windows problems. We have already seen how to start Windows 10 in safe mode and how to restart Windows directly in safe mode. Now let’s examine the importance of safe mode and the types of safe mode provided by the Windows operating system.

Safe Mode on Windows 10

When you boot Windows in Safe Mode, the operating system loads only the minimum drivers, files, and applications required for loading.

There are three different types of Safe Mode:

  1. Network Safe Mode
  2. Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Let’s examine these three types in detail.

When you start in Safe mode, the basic configuration loads. You start on a black desktop, and you may notice that your fonts and icons look large and are not sharp. That’s because only the basic pilots are loaded. You have access to the Start menu, mouse and keyboard, and you can also access your files. You will also see Safe Mode at the four corners and your Windows version number at the top center. If you use System Restore or if you want to run your antivirus to remove malware, which is often the case with most home users, this is the best boot mode. In addition to this feature, you also have access to other integrated Windows tools such as Command Prompt, PowerShell, Computer Manager, Device Manager, Device Manager, Event Log Viewer, etc.

TIP: You can add Safe Mode to the Windows 10 Start Menu options.

Secure mode with networking

When you start in secure mode with networking, you are directed to your office. An additional set of drivers – and the network drivers are loaded. This allows you to connect your computer to your network or the Internet. It is recommended not to surf in safe mode because your system is vulnerable and unprotected.

Safe mode with prompt

When you start in Safe mode at the prompt, do not start in the Windows GUI. You get direct access to an open command prompt window. Since you do not have access to your desktop and the Start menu, this mode is usually only used by experts who need to perform advanced troubleshooting.
