How to boot into safe mode in Windows 8 Release Preview

#1

Does anyone know how to boot into safe mode in Windows 8 Release Preview? In older versions of Windows you could just tap F8 as the os was booting up. Or is there a certain key to press that I don’t know about. Just curious. Will the same method that works in Release preview work in the RTM version when it officially goes on sale.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hold down the Shift key and press F8 as you boot up to get into Safe mode.

There is an alternate path to get there from within the operating system: http://www.howtogeek.com/107511/how-to-boot-into-safe-mode-on-windows-8-the-easy-way/
