Shutting Down Windows 10 is Much Easier than 8

Recommended Posts

Remember how painful it was (is) to shutdown, restart, sign out, or hibernate Windows 8? Microsoft did make it easier with the release of Windows 8.1 and the 8.1 update. It was so goofy in fact, we wrote a round-up article on the various ways you can do it which you can read in the following link:


With Windows 10, some of the same methods will work like right click on the Start button and select Shutdown and then the action you want.


Or, you can open the Start menu, and click the power button up near your user account name and picture. I would like it to be toward the bottom, but it might change by the time of the final release.


Clicking on your username and picture will allow you to lock your system, sign out, or change you account picture.
