How to Restart PC in Clean Boot Mode in Windows 10

Clean Booting is an enhanced feature of the normal booting process. During the booting process, usually , all the files and programs required for the OS to execute, as well as customizing the environment is done. Clean booting differs from the normal booting in the sense that, it eliminates all the optional features, and loads only those that are absolutely required by the OS currently. Also,there might be certain errors which can’t easily be identified at start up, but they appear frequent enough. Clean boot  does certain diagnostic tests which can help troubleshooting certain errors that might creep in during the normal booting process. Clean booting is adopted in many systems for a faster execution as well as to clean up the whole system from further errors.

The Safe mode can be adopted in the system by pressing the F8 button on the system start up. It minimizes the drivers needed by the operating system for speeding up execution, but does not correct any error. This is the reason why we need to prefer Clean boot over the Safe mode process. The method of doing so in Windows 10 operating system is a bit different from how you perform it in it’s previous versions.
