Just a thought, why not run a couple of tips and tricks article to help people (like me) who are a little slow on the uptake. It really could help some of those who are trying to learn Win 8. :)

In fairness to some, they are complaining for the sake of their moms, grandmas, or customers for IT support.

Still not tech savvy in that case too. If my non-tech friends or family wanted to know how to shut down in Windows 8, I'd tell them to use the really obvious method that works in all versions of Windows back to Windows 95 - press the power button, not try to overthink it and find new Start menu replacements or new Shutdown shortcuts.

It's really not that hard to shutdown/restart in Windows 8, and doesn't take "more time" as some claim. It literally takes like 2 seconds depending on method.

  • Alt + F4 on the desktop
  • Charms Bar > Settings > Power
  • Sign Out > Power Button on bottom of screen
  • Tap the Physical Power Button on the PC

are you for real or just trolling. haha. You funny

Seriously, were you having a problem figuring out how to shut down/restart? I really want to know. Given your complete and grammatically correct sentences, I really want to know if "you" had trouble shutting down in Windows 8.

Having said that, I have started trying to close desktop applications by dragging them to the bottom of the screen :/. No matter what anyone says, apps need to be closed. The more Modern apps you use, the app bar gets filled and switching apps or just finding the one you want is a cluster. Then you go to the desktop and start closing the Modern app way which obviously doesn't work. There will be issues on the desktop, I just don't see this as one of them.

I'll tell you what smart A** as I have told others when you have had a stroke plus two mini-strokes come talk to me about how hard it is to even remember how to spell little own remember all the in's and out's of being grammatically correct. It must be nice to have a truly perfecting operating brain . . :angry:

I actually was not attacking you personally, not sure why you took it that way. I really wanted to know if someone who takes the time to write properly, most Neowinians use shorthand and typos most of the time, myself included, was "really" having a problem with it. I think most are just complaining because they're not happy with MS not giving them options.

I thought I might find out if it "really" was a problem for people of pretty fair intelligence. If so, it might "be" a problem even though I don't see it as one. I'll take your response as a yes, yes it is.
