Tip #2 – Windows 8 (03/14/2013)

Is Windows 8 UI, pretty new to you?

Are you finding difficulty in performing the ‘Shut Down‘ or ‘Restart’ or ‘Hibernate’ ?

  • To shut Windows 8 down, just move the mouse cursor to the bottom right corner of the screen, click the Settings icon; Get into the Power option
  • Or press Win+I – and you’ll see a power button. Click this and choose ‘Shut Down’ or ‘Restart’
  • Some of the tricks available in previous versions of Windows still apply. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del, for instance, click the power button in the bottom right-hand corner and you’ll be presented with the same ‘Shut Down‘ and ‘Restart‘ options
  • And if you’re on the desktop, press Alt+F4 and you’ll be able to choose ‘Shut Down‘, ‘Restart‘, ‘Sign Out‘ or ‘Switch User‘ options.
