Shutdown Windows 8

After upgrading to Windows 8, many users are shocked with user interface. Microsoft tried to prepare user interface for all platforms. In my opinion Windows 8 user interface isn't suitable for classic desktop. But left this things behind us and solve famous issue for many users – SHUTDOWN.
If you work on your smartphone or table, shutdown isn’t so important feature. But on desktop, this is an everyday routine.

How to shutdown Windows 8?
1. Using the mouse
Move the mouse to the lower right corner on your desktop. This action will open Charms bar on the right side of the screen. Lowest icon is for Settings. If you click on it, the Charms bar will change to Settings bar. At the bottom you will find the Power button. Click it and you can choose Shutdown on simple menu.

2. Using the Windows Key + I
You can access Setting bar directly with pressing Windows Key and I together. At the bottom you will find the Power button. Click it and you can choose Shutdown on simple menu.

3. Using the Ctrl+Alt+Del combination and mouse click
You can use Ctrl+Alt+Del combination. This will change a screen and you will find a simple menu (Lock, Switch user, Sign out, Change a password, Task manager) in the center. On lower right corner you will find the Power button. Click it and you can choose Shutdown on simple menu.

4. Using shortcut
Create a shortcut on your desktop for Shutdown. Right mouse click and create a new shortcut. Instead of browsing for location of exe file, you should write “shutdown.exe –s –t 00” or "shutdown.exe /p".  Then you can change an icon and pin shortcut to Start or Taskbar. Voila.
