How do I (Windows 8.1)...?

I'm running Windows 8.1

How do I put my PC/Window into 'safe mode', both on start up and also after my PC/Windows has started up (both ways).

I'm not very PC/Windows literate so please instruct me with some detail.

Thank you so much for your help.

    Hold down the shift key while you restart to get into the recovery mode choose advanced and select safe mode

    * Murzu .... Thanks but it did not work. I turned off my PC, waited 30 second or so, tarted it again and like yoiu said, tapped F8 repeatedly but Windows 8.1 started i the normal way. So I did it again but this time I presed and held down F* and again it did not work. Any ideas ? Thank you.
