From within Windows, you can do it on the System Configuration utility (msconfig.exe). It's on the Boot tab and called Safe boot.
If you can't boot to Windows, you need to somehow reach the recovery environment: Choose an option.

I am able to access the safe mode but I can't see the Startup Settings option !
It seems that each time I want to access the safe mode I have to repeat this process

I am able to enable booting to safe mode from System Configuration utility
but I can't see the Startup Settings option, also I have to enable the Safe boot each time I want to boot to Safe Mode
I hope that makes sense

Of course not. Those are totally separate. The utility in Windows has nothing to do with that Startup Setting screen. Please read my message again.

So far as I know, when the System Configuration utility is set that way, you will always be booting into Safe Mode.
Does the setting change all by itself?

No at all it doesn't, but what I meant is I don't want to do this each time I want to boot to safe mode instead, I want the old
F8 menu, how can I recover the Recovery Environment
how come I don't see the Startup Settings option

I want the old F8 menu..
Me too. But when we have Windows 8.x, we get this one instead. Live with it.
Some claim they can reach it using Shift + F8 during boot after a complete shut down. Best to go to the Chose an option menu first then from there..
