Just more proof it takes more steps to do ANYTHING in Win8 over 7.


No, it's mostly just shutting down.
Press the power button on your tower, that'll shut it down, too, and it takes less effort than shutting down in Windows 7.


Press windows key
Shutdown

2 steps and I don't have to log out before I even have the option.

Irrelevant.
You said:

That's not true.
It is true that it takes more clicks to shut down Windows 8 than Windows 7.
My response is: press the power button on your tower, it's quicker than pressing your WinKey and clicking Shut Down.
You also don't need to log out of Windows 8 if you want to shut it down, although that's one way to do it.

I usually just call Geek Squad when I need to shut down.

But you don't have to logout in Windows 8, either...

Windows 7
1) Start
2) Shut Down
3) OK

Windows 8
1) Settings
2) Power
3) Shut Down

Don't need to click "OK" in Windows 7.
It is just Start and Shut down.

One does not simply shut down Windows 8.


Thank you for this sir, just what I needed to start me off right.

This is actually true because it Hibernates instead of shutting down.

But the quickest way is go to Desktop and press Alt+F4.

And that's misleading because hibernation means saving the system state to non-volatile storage, yet when you start your computer after shutting it down, you don't get back everything you may have had open before you shut down.
