Accessing startup boot options with Windows 8

With previous versions of Windows, the F8 key could be used during boot to access a list of startup options such as Safe Mode.  To access similar options with Windows 8, hold down the Shift key when clicking on the Restart option.

Another method is to use the shutdown.exe command with a new switch of /o.
