How do I boot into safe mode in Windows 8

How do I boot into safe mode in Windows 8 without a physical keyboard
Hi,

Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode)
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/windows-startup-settings-safe-mode

Other methods - from Desktop - put mouse in lower left corner - Right Click - RUN  OR 
WINKEY + X - RUN  :  type in MSCONFIG.exe  - Boot tab - check Safe boot - APPLY / OK
- REBOOT. Or use General tab - Diagnostic Startup or Selective Startup - APPLY / OK.

Or Charms Menu OR WINKEY + Q - Search Apps - MSCONFIG - see above.

Hope this helps.
