Windows 10: entering windows repair mode

On my pc, windows 10 update often cause my PC to unstable (application error and system not responded after update).

This note, as my personal guide to enter windows repair mode.

To enter windows repair mode, do these steps:

  1. At window 10 login screen, hold shift button and click Power -> Restart.
  2. Next screen choose Troubleshoot and Advanced Options.
  3. There are some option to choose depend on what we want to repair:
    1. Command prompt (my favorite)
    2. Startup Setting
    3. Startup repairĀ 
    4. others
  4. Then restart your windows, it will start your windows in repair mode.


For common troubleshooting do these sequence:

  1. sfc /scannow
  2. chkdsk c: /f
