Re: Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Michael, I no longer have any computers running the Windows 8 or 8.1 OS so can’t check it for you.  Perhaps someone more knowledgeable than I on this list can answer the question. 

 

Thx, Albert

I don’t know if the process will work in Windows 8.

I added shortcuts to my desktop for ShutDown and ReStart as follows:

 

1. Windows D to go to the Desktop.

2. Control Space Bar to unselect.

3. Press the Context Menu key and down arrow to New Submenu, then right arrow to open the submenu.  Down arrow to Shortcut and press the Enter key. 

4. Copy and paste the following text in the Edit Field that appears, then Tab to the Next Button and press the Space Bar.

C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0

5. Type a Name for your new shortcut in the Edit Field that appears, then Tab to the Finish Button and press the Space Bar.  That’s it, you’re done.  You now have a shortcut on the Desktop for shutting down your computer. 

 

*Note: if you wish to add a Restart the Computer shortcut to the Desktop, you merely have to use the below text when following the above instructions. 

C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 0

 

Thx, Albert

Oh okay. Sometimes I use the start to shut down. Or the desktop. So, Now if I ever ended up with ten. I can do windows x and the letter u twice? I’ll probably use the alt f 4 on the desk top.

Hi Arlene,

 

Yes as you are doing now will work exactly the same in Windows 10.  It's only if you access shut down from the Start menu that it's in a different place.

Hi, Quentin,

The easiest way for me to shut down is to go to the desktop, hit alt F-4 and hit enter. I also like the windows X, u and u keystroke too. It's similar to how you'd shut down in windows XP.

Hi Steve,

To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start menu is now three columns wide.  The left column has user account / file explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps (first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles.  You can still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.

What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.

If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided due to data loss :)

There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for some.

Regards

Quentin.
