Yes...let the **** flame party begin, if you don't like the way you have to shut down windows 8, for the love of god, get classic shell, its free, and quit your whining, its annoying...
Geees... people these days
and for the doofus that said it takes more time do it...
CHARMS BAR > SETTINGS > Click on power, shutdown....ohhhh 3 seconds., this is so difficult
Sigh....It is not the time. But when you forget, you go to the start screen and look around for 10 seconds and remember "Oh that is right"....it adds up. You work on Windows XP up to Windows 7 at work, have the nice little Start Menu and click Shut Down right there. When you get home, you forget these things.
Again, I have had to repeat myself numerous times to people where the shut down procedure is now. If you add up the time, they sit in the start screen for a little while trying to find it, they have to pick up the phone and call me and say "Sorry I forgot again, where is shut down?".
It is hard for us to understand the general public.
AGAIN, for the millionth time, of course there will be people out there that can use Windows 8 perfectly fine. But for those that cannot, and who I had to deal with, just put the stupid button in the Start Screen.....it will not hurt those of you that use the charms bar.
I love it when people just recommend Start8/startisback/classicshell/etc....Most likely businesses will not install third party software like this AND not go through the process of retaining people. What do you recommend for them? I know some businesses require you to shut down your computer when you leave.
So we no longer have the right to complain/voice our opinions about anything anymore? We are consumers. If we do not voice our objections, that benefits NOBODY. Somebody releases a patch that breaks something (app store for example). People should not be allowed to rate it 1 star because it is now broke? Developers listen to that stuff. If nobody says anything, for all they know it works perfectly fine in their test environment.
We shouldn't HAVE to resort to Start8 and the similar programs to give us the functionality we had for 17 years. I get it "Change is needed....blah blah blah"....but when Windows is installed on the REGULAR Desktop (no touch screen is detected, standard desktop computer for business use), it should have options like this. BUILT IN to the OS, not having people download third party programs. It opens a lot of issues when things do not work.
