PowerPoint in Safe Mode

When in regurlar mode while running your computer, what is the keystroke you can hit to run a single program ex. Powerpoint in safe mode?  I have a presentation that will not run properly unless in safe mode but I don't want to run everything else.  Any suggestions?

Hi lmpsteelwire,

You can force PowerPoint to start in Office Safe Mode: hold down the CTRL key while you start the program by double-clicking its icon or by double-clicking the icon for a PPT, PPTX, PPS, PPSX file. Hold the CTRL key down until you see a message box that asks whether you want to start in safe mode. Click Yes.
