Stuck in safe mode2021-08-31T09:57:36+01:00

Hello everyone. I just found this site and I hope you guys could help me. I put my computer in safe mode and now I can’t get out. I have a Window’s 10 home computer that has never had any issues until it started acting up a few days ago. That’s when I decided to put it into safe mode to check it out.

Long story short, I can’t get out of safemode. I have tried using the command prompt, but when I try to do the {default} thing I’ve seen people online do, it gives me a syntax error. When I try to change the boot settings by using Windows+R and typing msconfic, and changing the settings, it tells me something like “your computer has to restart to apply these changes” and then it restarts but doesn’t update any settings and I’m back in safe mode even after a new restart. I’ve tried force stopping it and seeing if I am brought to a menu that can return me to normal mode, but at no avail.

Then just restarting should return you to normal boot.
Windows installation media/Media creation tool & create Windows installation media & use this to boot Windows & then use cmd prompt.

All I did to boot it in safemode was to click on restart while holding down shift. From there I clicked on a menu and I chose “Safe Mode” there were a few other options like “Safe mode with command prompt” “Safe mode with networking” et cetera.

What do you mean boot with media?

Can you log in? If yes it should be as simple as choosing normal boot.

Try booting your machine with Windows 10 installation media
At the Install screen, click on “Repair” on the lower left.
Then Troubleshoot.
Command Prompt with Admin.
Select Command Prompt and type in the following:
bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safeboot
If that gives an error, use:
bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot

This will not ask for any password & should work.
If not then something else has been changed. What did you do to boot into safe mode? The simple way of booting to troubleshoot & select safe mode or did you change any boot config settings or something else?
