welcome to the forum!

 

F8 gets you into safe mode but you'll still need to know the user password.

 

however, per our community participation rules, we do not allow the discussion of passwords or password subversion methods.

No solicitation for, nor exchange of information that will aid or enable unethical, illegal or immoral activities.
For example, no posts concerning exchange of passwords, credit or banking information, warranty entitlement information for purpose of re-entitling out of warranty products. No posts shall include instructions or directions intended to subvert security measures, including passwords, locking mechanisms, fingerprint scans, etc, nor shall any posts provide descriptions to the location of, nor direct links to content related to these topics.

thanks for understanding.
