One of the most practical functions of Windows 11 for administrative issues is to use Safe Mode, this mode allows the system to load with the minimum of drivers and thus be able to perform support actions in a centralized way because it only loads the minimum of drivers and services, with this mode all device drivers and third-party software are temporarily disabled since the cause of the errors may be in them..

 

Windows 11 safe mode can be used in basic form or with the network drivers in case tasks and management are needed in this part of Windows. TechnoWikis will explain some ways to access Safe Mode in Windows 11.
