We all know that shutting down a Windows 8 machine can be quite “long”. Clicking here and there just to do the little job of shutting down.
Well in Windows 8.1, the procedure is a bit different though you can still use the usual combination (Windows key + I) to bring up the charms menu on the right side of the screen, click power, and then finally click the Shutdown option.
Today I’ll show you the easiest way to shutdown your machine, using only the keyboard. It might come in handy if your mouse decides to give up on you. So here goes:
Simply press the Windows key and the letter “X” on your keyboard simultaneously. Then press the letter “U” on your keyboard twice in succession. That’s it! Your machine should shut down now.
It’s a simple trick. Do share with a friend. Let them know how geeky you have become.
