Exiting Windows safe mode is usually possible just by restarting the computer. However, it can happen that the user unintentionally activates an option for the system to always start this way. Safe mode is usually activated automatically when the computer is recovering from a critical error or can be intentionally triggered by the user for troubleshooting purposes.
