I have Windows 8 installed and, as I mentioned is a previous post, I am finding that I like it more than I expected. But there is one thing that really bugs me about it. As intuitive as the new user interface is, one thing that is not intuitive at all is how you shut the darn thing down. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think I should have to move my mouse to the upper right corner, select setting, then select power and then click shutdown. I’m sorry, but that is ridiculous. There is a keyboard shortcut that allows you to get to a shutdown window by pressing alt-F4 from the desktop. While that is faster, I want a one click solution, and I found one. All you have to do is create a shortcut for the shutdown /s /t 0. There is a nice step-by-step guide over at the Laptopmag blog.
