How to Turn Off Safe Mode on Windows

Windows safe mode is a feature that allows you to troubleshoot problems that arise on your computer with only the most basic processes, drivers and applications running. You will not be able to surf the web in safe mode, and your computer screen will look a little fuzzy because your system will be using the standard video driver. After you finish making the necessary adjustments to your system, you can easily jump right back into your computer's normal mode.
