You have started your new Windows 8.1 computer. Now how are going to shut it down? I faced this problem myself. So I am going to tell you right now in the early part of these tutorials how to shut down a computer running Windows 8.1. It is a bit tricky and not very apparent.
Here is how:
Hold your mouse pointer in the upper or lower right corner of any screen to bring out the Charms Bar and click on Settings. In the Settings menu, click on Power. Please see screenshot below.
That will bring up a sub-menu giving three options: Sleep, Shut down, and Restart. Click on Shut down to shutdown Windows. Please see screenshot below.
Use the same method to Restart your computer.
The easiest way to put your computer to Sleep, is just hit the crescent moon key on your Windows 8 keyboard. To wake it, press the crescent moon key again.
