    how shutdown quickly With the keyboard only


    ON Win7 it was really simple & quick to shutdown the computer with the keyboard.

    (Win), (Right arrow) [(right arrow) again for select which method ]

    so is there any way on Win8 to have a quick keyboard like this ?

    thx people..

    From the desktop : Alt F4 and select your option. But from Metro ?

    CTRL+Alt+Del and use the tab button to navigate to the off button in the bottom right hand corner & then press enter and select which option you want with the up and down arrows is another method. If you then decide not to shut down just press Esc twice to get back to exactly where you were beforehand.
