    How to easily Shutdown Windows 8 Consumer preview

    I guess all new users of Windows 8 consumer preview might be facing this problem. Just like the Metro apps, start menu and all, Shutting down Windows 8 is also like war for me.
    I am not able to shutdown because the option is very confusing, so I just need to know how can is shutdown my computer easily and quickly.

    Is there any shortcut for the same ?

    Please help. Thanks in advance…

    You can also do this easily from the Charm Menu. Moving your mouse to the top right corner of the screen and press Windows Key + C and after that make click on the setting.

    Now here select the power and after that choose what you want shutdown or restart.

    Another way to shutdown is press Alt+F4 and make sure you have not running any program. When you press the Alt+F4 you will get the below options:

    • Switch User
    • Sign Out
    • Shut Down
    • Restart


    Now here select the option which you want and I think this is best way to shutdown and restart your system.
