I cannot enter Safe mode. I am stuck on filling in Recovery code number which the box for the number does not take. It has something to do with bitlocker thing? Is this W11 new stuff?

I was trying to uninstall EDGE and could not. I thought doing it in safe mode might help.
Btw, what does restore health cmd do? I did it and got a result only of successful scan. Did it find anything wrong and just restored the system?

Scannow typically checks the operating system.
Restorehealth typically checks the component store.
Chkdsk typically checks the drive file system.

Please post images or share links displaying the commands with results.
For share links please use one drive, drop box, or google drive.

Indicate whether you were or were not able to boot into safe mode using bcdedit /set {current} safeboot minimal

If there was an error message or code please post images or share links.





This link has commands to uninstall Microsoft Edge: (It's best to have a backup image)

Just a word of warning, even if you uninstall Edge, at some point a windows update will bring it back. Would it not be easier to just not use Edge. You can remove its shortcut in your taskbar and desktop if you want.

As far as being unable to get into safe boot, turn off bitlocker and see if you can enter safe mode. Turn Off BitLocker for Drive in Windows 11 Tutorial
