How To Boot Up Your Windows 10 PC Into Diagnostics Mode Tutorial

Boot Your PC Safely While Troubleshooting Issues

In this guide, we will show you how to boot Windows 10 into diagnostics mode if you have been having issues with your computer recently then loading Windows 10 into diagnostics mode could help you determine what’s causing the issue as it will only load the basic devices and services.

Windows diagnostic mode is a bit like safe mode but with more options available, as we already said it loads only basic services and devices but it’s a little easier to get into as you can change the option within System Configuration and then restart your computer.

We find diagnostic mode very handy when it comes to fixing errors on a PC or laptop whever it is signing into Windows issues, crashing problems, or the dreaded bluescreen.

Just remember you can revert your PC back to normal startup mode very easily.

****Top Tip****
If you are still having issues on your Windows 10 PC whilst running in diagnostics mode then I would recommend booting up your PC into safe mode as that mode disables even more options.
