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.

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

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:

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.

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

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.

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.

Hi Quentin,
Could you elaborate a bit on the dark mode you were talking about?
Does it permit complete dimming of the screen?
Albert,
Thanks for the instructions - one thing I learnt was that Ctrl + Space
is used to unselected something. Previously, I always used to create a
random folder and then delete it to have focus on nothing, to be able
to get to the New submenu on the Desktop.
Thanks.

only if you access shut down from the Start menu that it's in a different

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

Hi Bhavya,

The new colour option doesn't allow for complete dimming of the screen.  If you are using a desktop, you should be able to simply leave the monitor off (although my PC looks for the monitor connection and won't start if it doesn't detect that the monitor is already on (which is quite annoying as the monitor actually is on, it just takes a second or so to come on).  If you are using a laptop, you might try pressing WINDOWS+P to "Project" the screen and choose "Second screen only" to in effect turn off your main screen.

So what the new colour option does is simply make the Windows settings display with white text on a black background rather than black text on white, which is the default for most things.

You can set it in the windows options (WINDOWS+i), choose personalisation, then colours then "Choose your app mode" and set it to "Dark" rather than "Light".

Regards

Quentin.

Yes but as alt/f4 and select from the menu is so easy, why alter it. there also seems to be issues when updates want to install as well.

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

Hi Bhavya,

The new colour option doesn't allow for complete dimming of the screen. If
you are using a desktop, you should be able to simply leave the monitor off
(although my PC looks for the monitor connection and won't start if it
doesn't detect that the monitor is already on (which is quite annoying as
the monitor actually is on, it just takes a second or so to come on). If
you are using a laptop, you might try pressing WINDOWS+P to "Project" the
screen and choose "Second screen only" to in effect turn off your main
screen.

So what the new colour option does is simply make the Windows settings
display with white text on a black background rather than black text on
white, which is the default for most things.

You can set it in the windows options (WINDOWS+i), choose personalisation,
then colours then "Choose your app mode" and set it to "Dark" rather than
"Light".

Regards

Quentin.

Albert,
Thanks for the instructions - one thing I learnt was that Ctrl + Space
is used to unselected something. Previously, I always used to create a
random folder and then delete it to have focus on nothing, to be able
to get to the New submenu on the Desktop.
Thanks.

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.

Hi Quentin,
Thanks for the detailed explanation. One of the critical deficiencies
I found in Windows 10 was non-functionality of the second screen only
technique. It works perfectly well on Windows 8.1, and therefore I was
compelled to roll back. Appreciate all the informative content though.
Thanks.

A small number of machines need to see a monitor or they won't boot.  Im not sure if the monitor needs to be on but it needs to see one connected, if not on.  I've seen this discussed many years ago on another list.  I expect that this has nothing to do with Windows 10.

Hi, actually, second screen does work for me, with windows 10. As I have 100% light vision, I can confirm, personally.

Hi Quentin,
Thanks for the detailed explanation. One of the critical deficiencies
I found in Windows 10 was non-functionality of the second screen only
technique. It works perfectly well on Windows 8.1, and therefore I was
compelled to roll back. Appreciate all the informative content though.
Thanks.

Hi Bhavya,

The new colour option doesn't allow for complete dimming of the screen.  If
you are using a desktop, you should be able to simply leave the monitor off
(although my PC looks for the monitor connection and won't start if it
doesn't detect that the monitor is already on (which is quite annoying as
the monitor actually is on, it just takes a second or so to come on).  If
you are using a laptop, you might try pressing WINDOWS+P to "Project" the
screen and choose "Second screen only" to in effect turn off your main
screen.

So what the new colour option does is simply make the Windows settings
display with white text on a black background rather than black text on
white, which is the default for most things.

You can set it in the windows options (WINDOWS+i), choose personalisation,
then colours then "Choose your app mode" and set it to "Dark" rather than
"Light".

Regards

Quentin.

Hi Quentin,
Could you elaborate a bit on the dark mode you were talking about?
Does it permit complete dimming of the screen?
Albert,
Thanks for the instructions - one thing I learnt was that Ctrl + Space
is used to unselected something. Previously, I always used to create a
random folder and then delete it to have focus on nothing, to be able
to get to the New submenu on the Desktop.
Thanks.

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.
