How to start Windows 11 in safe mode | Digital Trends Spanish

If you are looking to troubleshoot your new installation of Windows 11, a good idea is to learn how to start Windows 11 in safe mode. It is a way to open a limited version of your operating system in which not all the drivers or all the functions that your computer normally uses are loaded, thus facilitating the solution of any detail you have.

The different safe modes

Before we go on to explain how to enter Safe Mode, we just want to touch on the 3 existing versions of diagnostic mode in Windows 11. Each of them can be used for different purposes and we explain it below.

  • Safe Mode: This is the mode most people will use. This disables all additional programs and features in Windows 11 and will only give you access to a basic desktop experience so you can access important files and documents, tweak drivers, and other things. Note that there are no networks in this mode, so it is a great way to access files if you think you are a victim of malware.
  • Safe mode with networking: It is the same as the normal Safe Mode, but enables the network. Despite the name, it is not safe to use as it can allow hackers to enter your computer through an internet connection if you use it to diagnose problems or rescue files.
  • Secure mode with system symbol– You will need to make sure you know how to use the command prompt even before entering this version of safe mode. This opens the command prompt and lets you type old-school DOS-style commands to get around operating system problems. In this mode there is no visual interface, the interaction with the operating system is only through text commands.

If you can still access Windows 11 and your computer is not completely damaged, one of the easiest ways to activate Safe Mode in Windows 11 is from the login screen. You can do it by following these steps below.

Step 1: hold down the key Shift and click the power button icon in the lower right corner of the screen.

Step 2: keep pressing Shift and choose Restart.

Step 3: Release the key afterwards. The computer will restart. If you have Bitlocker encryption enabled, you may need to enter the key.

Step 4: once you see the screen Choose an option, select the option Solve problems.

Step 5: from there, choose Advanced Options and later Startup settings.

Step 6– Pay attention to the prompts on the screen, and then click the button Restart.

Once the computer restarts, there will be a list of options on the screen. Make sure to select the option you want by pressing the respective key on the keyboard. Each number on your keyboard will correspond to a respective safe mode.

These numbers may vary by computer, so pay attention to what appears on the screen. You’ll only have a few seconds to make a decision before Safe Mode times out.

Enter Safe Mode from a black screen or corrupted Windows 11 computer

In the event that you cannot enter Safe Mode in Windows 11 from the login screen, you can do so by turning your device on and off again, until you force it to enter the Windows Recovery Environment.

This is a built-in environment in a special place on the storage drive of most new computers, allowing you to restore or troubleshoot Windows. You can enter the Windows recovery environment with these steps below.

Step 1– Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to turn off your computer.

Step 2– Press the power button again to turn on your computer.

Step 3– If you see that Windows has started and you see your computer manufacturer’s logo, press and hold the power button again for 10 seconds to force shutdown your device.

Step 4– Press the power button again to turn on your computer.

Step 5– When Windows restarts, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to turn off your device.

Step 6: Press the power button again to turn on your device.

Step 7– Allow your computer to restart completely and it will enter the Windows Recovery Environment.

Once you enter the Windows recovery environment, you can follow our steps in the previous section (starting from step 4) to enter safe mode.

A third way to enter Safe Mode can happen directly from Windows 11. You can do it by following our steps below. Just keep in mind that this option will require you to have a fully functioning computer.

Step 1: click on the menu Start and search Setting.

Step 2: seeks Recovery in the side menu on the right of the screen.

Step 3: scroll down and choose Advanced startup, then click the button Restart now.

Step 4– Follow the steps in the second section of this article, starting with Step 4.

How to get out of safe mode

After diagnosing and solving your Windows 11 problem, you can restart your computer to its original state and exit Safe Mode. This is as simple as restarting and shutting down your device as you normally would. No additional steps are required.
