Understanding "Safe Mode" . . .

From a link on MacSurfer: [computers.tutsplus.com]

Many here are familiar with Safe Mode, but many don't really understand what it does. Here you go.

I now understand Safe Mode much better.


YMMV

A very good reference to explain why one of my reflexive responses to problems is to say start up in Safe Mode. It bypasses lots of stuff that can cause problems and does some good checks.

  1. press the Spacebar
  2. type x [lowercase]
  3. Press Return

OS X will start in "Safe Mode"
