Lightbulb Safe Mode /Advance Setting Win 8/8.1 at Start up

To give Access to ADVANCE START UP /SAFE MODE WINDOWS 8 and 8.1
at Start up, [JUST AFTER BOOT] IN CASE OF DRIVER OR UPDATE PROBLEMS

F8 to Safemode WILL NOT WORK JUST AFTER BOOT UP with some pc/laptops with WIN 8/8.1 start ups ,

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INSTALL THIS ON ALL INSTALLS /UPGRADES TO WIN 8/8.1 ON ALL PCs/LAPTOPS
AS SOON AS NEW WIN 8 /8.1 O.S LOADED,
you can remove it when you want to later,
when sure the pc laptop o.s. stable
[usefull with older pc and hardwear updateing probs ]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

start Apps screen
find Cmd screen and pin to start,/DESKTOP
Restart Desktop
CMD app now in taskbar at bottom

Bcdedit /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will go in to Advance Start up,

this can save a lot of problems of BAD start up if you get incompatabliy probs as you update drivers/apps in new WIN/8/8.1 ,
with some pc/laptops
and they do happen ,
