Method #1: Disable Startup Extensions by Holding Down the Shift Key at Startup

To disable all of your startup extensions at startup:

  1. Restart the Macintosh.

  2. Immediately press and hold down the Shift key. If you do not press it soon enough, it will not work. If it fails to work, restart and try again. The first sign that it worked is that, when the Welcome to Macintosh screen is displayed, the words Extensions off appear directly below the words Welcome to Macintosh. You can now release the Shift key; your startup extensions have been disabled for this startup. No startup extension icons will appear along the bottom of the startup screen. This is all only a temporary change. Everything returns to its previous condition the next time you start up.
