Re: Shut Down, etc

I agree. There do seem to be, from the sighted point of view, quite a lot of options on screen we cannot get at aas a mouse user can. Not sure if this was some deliberate act or just an oversight in design, but the alt/f4 is my preferred method. However the next snap seems to have issues sometimes with both this menu and some context menus and the nvda menu. A reboot of nvda seems to restore the menus.
Sadly nobody else could duplicate this problem and I have my suspicions that its some software I run that cocks up nvda next.

I use the alt F-4 method of shutting down. Both alt F-4 and windows x are fast.

In Windows 10 that don't work.

windows+X can be a good alternative.

hello ralf,
when you're in the desktop, press the windows key.
after that press 2 times uparrow.
you hear shutdown or something, press enter there.
now you can make the choice restart or close the computer or the sleepmode.

Dear Folks,

My Windows 10 went through some kind of update and now my NVDA cannot access
the Power button for shutting down or restarting, etc. I open the Start
menu, using the Windows key, then go to Navegation, using the tab key. With
the down arrow I get down to the User Account button, but then it won’t
continue down to the Power button. Any suggestions?
