    Hi all,
    Restart my computer,My computer restarts but before Windows launches, press "F8" key constantly.

    Hi harris,
    in the command prompt and then press the Enter key:
    Code:
    bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy


    Press the Enter key,If completed successfully, You can see "The operation completed successfully." in the cmd windows. You now need to restart your computer for the change to go into effect. With this settings configured, you can now press F8 while Windows 8 starts in order to access Safe Mode and other Advanced Boot options.
