I heard that you can defrag a system in safe-mode, much faster then in normal-mode.

My question is, how do you reboot the computer into safe mode? or exit normal-mode onto safe-mode?

What are the key strokes?

Running Win98

If I remember right, you hold down the F8 key when the windows startup screen appears. This will take you to a menu, with an option of starting up in Safe Mode. Scan Disk also runs much faster in Safe Mode.

If you go to Start - Help, and in the Index, type SAFE, it will take you to detailed instructions on startup in Safe Mode.

Found it, thanks, F8 was not it, it's CTRL key.

Tried the F8 key after your 1st post and all it did was beeps at me.
