    Default Nexus 5 in safe mode

    My N5 was one acting up and wouldn't boot earlier. It just kept getting stuck on the splash screen and kept cycling on and off but would never boot up. Anyway I stayed pushing and holding things and it finally booted but in "safe mode". I think I held volume down when the slash screen was on.
    So now it looks like it's been reset cause my apps and home screen are back to "factory" and I don't know
    A) how I got into boot mode (and what it means)
    And
    B) how I get out of it

    Can any one help?
    Thank you!

    Safe mode should go away on restart.

    Safe mode:
    It basically disables all third party apps for troubleshooting issues
    To get into safe mode, instead of tapping on power off in the dialog box, touch and hold power off.
