Restore F8 Safe Mode in Windows 8.x and Windows 10 TP

Pressing F8 to go into Safe Mode in Windows became a regular routine for those who needed to perform a quick fix until the advent of Windows 8.x. I have to admit that it was extremely frustrating not being able to invoke Safe Mode by simply pressing F8 during Windows start-up. To restore F8, launch the Command Prompt as administrator and type the command below and press Enter thereafter.

Restart your computer and test if it works for you.

Hope this helps
