Disabling Safe Mode

by jcunningham53 / February 23, 2016 11:28 AM PST

I work in an education environment and these kids are very savvy. They have figured out how to put the computer in Safe Mode and make it impossible for me to track them. Does any one have any advice on how to Disable Safe Mode?

Given you are in IT you make the call to Microsoft and ask about that. Many schools deployed with titles like deepfreeze or other. Today we have browsers in incognito and other modes so you are left with more holes than a whack a mole board.

Microsoft used to have a group dedicated to education deployment. Ask for them.

I know. We are using LanSchool but these kids are really smart.

To ask for a new feature or how to. If they don't do this then you may have to deploy another way.

I haven't used it, but I have heard of it, and it might be an option. It allows you to turn Safe Mode options "on" or "off" through a command line using removable media.

Disable Safe Mode Command Line Tool

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
