Do you boot in Safe Mode often?

Do you want to add it to the boot options on Windows 10 startup?

This tutorial is the way to go!

When you face problems like Malware, system crashing or Ransomware attacking your PC the first thing you try to do is access the Safe Mode to perform a restore or save your files.

In a previous tutorial, I have shown you 3 Ways to Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10 but if you want fast access to the Safe Mode every time you boot your system you need to add it to the boot options.

If you have any questions please leave a comment below.

Let’s go!

You will receive this message: You have chosen to commit the changes you’ve made in the “BOOT” tab, which includes all current and previous changes. This will make those changes permanent, and you will not be able to undo the changes at a later time. Are you sure you want to continue?

Click “Yes“.

On the next Startup, you will get a “Choose an operating system” screen.

Click “Change defaults or choose other options“.

Here you can change how much time that screen is shown before booting automatically, the default value is “30 seconds“, you can also change the default operating system (or mode in our case).

There are also other options but we will not talk about them now…

The periods that you can choose from are 5 minutes, 30 seconds, and 5 seconds.

In case you choose “Windows Safe Mode” as default operating system, it will be in the first place while on boot.

If you want to delete the Safe Mode from the menu, make sure it’s not the default option.
