Under Safe Mode, only such basic startup programs as drivers for keyboard, mouse and the OS itself. Safe Mode with Networking is just the basic Safe Mode where you can access the Internet. “Safe Mode”, “Safe Mode with Networking” and “Safe Mode with Command Prompt” are usually arranged in the same list on the Windows System. If you are first time to use Windows 10 and try to enter into Safe Mode of the system, you will find that the “old methods” of pressing the key of F8 or combination of Shift + F8 keys on the keyboard no longer lead into the list of various Safe Mode at all.
