Q

Can I create a desktop icon for restarting XP in safe mode?

Is it possible to create a desktop icon for restarting Windows XP in safe mode?
Yes, but it's probably more trouble than it's worth. You must write a script that changes Boot.ini to add the /safeboot boot option. Then run the script from your shortcut. For more information, type "msconfig" in the Run dialog box. In the System Configuration Utility, click the Boot.ini tab.
