How to Start Windows Mobile in Safe Mode

By James Ford

Unfortunately, Windows Mobile does not come with the option to boot into Safe Mode like its PC-based counterparts, which means that should your mobile crash or experience an error you will have to hard reset the device. However some third parties have created programs to install onto your mobile device that allow you to enter a safe mode.


Step 1

Click one of the links in the Resources section below to go to their website and download the Safe Mode application, or search for similar programs using a search engine.

Step 2

Open the program.

Step 3

Follow the instructions on screen for how to install the program on your PC and/or mobile device. If you get stuck, the websites each have a help section.
