How do i get into safemode in windows 8. I am in trouble againa nd starting to hate computers.
I installed Microsoft Office and and when trying to use it for the first time the mouse froze totally. all i can do is sign in but nothing else. the apps come up but with no mouse i cannot get anywhere at all. I think it is a problem with Office so was going to uninstall it but cannot get to do that. I have tried F8 but it doesn't seem to work so unless i can get in to delete it i am stuck again.
I am on my old, reliable vista, don't care for win 8 so far, lol.
Will stay online for replies.
Thanks in advance.
Is you Win8 on a new pc-laptop or desktop, or just installed on an older PC?
A bit more info might help and attract other helpers.
Only other thing I can think of off-hand is to try re-starting the Win8 PC, might get the mouse working again. If necessary, hold down the Start button for 4 seconds or more to switch off PC, then try a normal re-start.
Once logged in can you use the keyboard to navigate? Tab key, arrow keys etc? If not hold the power switch to shut down. Restart and on booting then hold Shift key while tapping F8 after bios has loaded. You might get lucky. Another thought is try another usb port for the mouse. If it's a new Pc you could have the mouse connected to a USB 3 port. Try a USB 2 port.
F8 doesn't work for Win 8. However, holding the win button + f gets you into the settings and from there you can type in the search bar. But, i cannot find how to reactive the mouse. I don't want to use voice recognition and i cannot get the keyboard to work for the mouse either. Without a mouse things are difficult.
it's a new laptop and restarting didn't work for getting the mouse back. I can get into things via the up/down side buttons but that only works up to a point, some things i cannot get into via the up/down pad.
the question is how do i get the mouse to work again nd why did it stop working?
I have uninstalled the problem programme but it didn't make a difference.
