  • Windows will bring up the Properties window for the selected Screenshot folder.
  • There are a number of good free applications for this.
  • When you click on the image, it opens up in a snipping tool window, and you can then proceed to save the screenshot by pressing the “Ctrl” and “S” keys together(Ctrl + S).

If you don’t do this, the system boots to Safe Mode every time you restart. The Settings app provides several options to manage Windows, including resetting and booting Safe Mode. You can use the Advanced Recovery options to enter the Safe Mode via the Settings app. If your PC turns on but won’t go past the login screen, you can use an option on this screen itself to boot into safe mode. Aside from anything else, if you DO get to the menu choice screen after the restart, you may find that your PC ignores your keyboard, and you CAN’T choose Safe Mode.

Click on your snip and you will enter the Snipping Tool app. From here you save your image by clicking on the button on the upper right (or just press Ctrl+S). After you capture a snip, you should see a notification pop up on your screen. If you missed it, just click on the time and date at the corner of your screen to enter the notifications menu. Click and launch the app once it shows up in your search results. Now click on ‘New’ if you wish to make a rectangular screen capture.

Some PC manufacturers disable this action, and on some PCs, startup is fast enough that it’s hard to hit the key at the right time. You can press F8 key during booting to enter into Windows Advanced Boot Options screen, and choose a Safe Mode option to boot Windows 10 into Safe Mode. If your computer is infected by malware or virus, or has a system crash or hard drive error, you may lose some important data and files, and can’t start Windows 10 normally. The safe mode is defined as the problem diagnostic mode in Windows 10.

The staged rollout used machine learning and algorithms to offer the upgrade to the Windows 10 devices that were considered the most compatible with the new version. Downloading and installing Windows 11 will most likely take longer than a typical Windows 10 feature update. You can use your PC while you’re downloading Windows 11 and then you have the option to schedule the install to happen at a specific time when you aren’t planning on using your PC. Other user interface changes include window snapping improvements and something distinctly cosmetic in the form of a volume control to dispense with some of the last vestiges of the Windows 8 era. The start menu is now centralised, although you’ll have the option to move it back to the left of the screen if old habits die hard. There are also Snap Layouts that let you move programs in a more intuitive way, and personalised Widgets.

Click Yes on the pop-up window asking if you are sure you want to uninstall the program. Uninstalling some programs may require you to go through an uninstall wizard before the process is complete. The Windows Start Tab can be accessed by clicking on the Windows icon on the lower left of the screen. This tab has a list of most of the apps installed on your computer and can be customized according to the user’s preferences.
