1. Alternative: Open with msconfig.exe
Can you start Windows 10 normally? You can also use msconfig.exe instead, which is great.
- Type msconfig.exe in the Start menu search box and click System Configuration.
- Then click on the Home tab.
- Check the Secure Boot checkbox here.
- Click OK to confirm, then reboot and Windows will start in safe mode. To restart normally later, simply disable the Secure Boot feature.

If Windows 10 startup is interrupted multiple times (23), the Automatic Repair window will appear on startup.
- In the Automatic Repair window, select Advanced Options.
- The Select Options window opens. Then select Troubleshoot.
- Now select Advanced Options > Startup Parameters.
- Select Reboot to open the system menu where you can configure boot parameters. Then select “Enable safe mode”.
3. Alternative: Start Safe Mode directly from Windows 10
- Open the Settings app
- Select Update & security.
