People just love to moan rolleyes.gif

Hitting Win+typing "shu" gives you the same option to shutdown as Linux Alt+F2 method thumb.gif

yes because typing a word is much more convenient than clicking a button

That would had been restart for me tongue.gif , but yeah, I forgot I changed it from the default. Either way, not much difference I think.

Adding a step to an often performed task is quite noticeable to me.

Microsoft is really headed towards the wrong direction with Windows. Instead of trying to improve the desktop experience which is what they were always known for, they are focusing on the touch experience that is dominated by Apple and Google. They will never be able to catch up to iOS and Android which are 100% touch when they are focusing on a touch/desktop hybrid OS.

Hmmm...it takes me longer and sometimes windows pulls up setting instead. I guess I didn't teach it as well since I neglect it. But yeah, completely over looked that. But come to think of it...can't you just shut down from the Ctrl+Atl+Del menu still or did they change that as well?

LOL. Try seeing which one is faster. While you're steering the mouse in GUI land those of us that know how to use computers are on to other things. There's a time for GUIs and mouse/touch navigation but only when it makes things faster. This is not one of those times.

Yeah, sometimes it won't pull settings in the search but I thought it was worth pointing out the method works just like Linux wink.gif

Personally, Alt+F4:



Cursor keys + hit enter.

I'll challenge anyone with mouse clicks vs this method.

The whole Win 8 thing is just a storm in a teacup with the same tired old arguements rolleyes.gif

1. Yes, you can Shut Down Windows 7 from the Ctrl + Alt +Del screen with a single click; from Windows 8 you have to select the option from a menu, you can't Shut Down with a single click. In any case pressing three keys to then be able to access the Power menu is not efficient. In Windows 7 it's there for convenience, but the main goal of that screen is arguably to get you away from the desktop and eventually lock the PC afterwards (although there are other options they conveniently added to make it more useful).

2. You can't possibly be saying that pressing two keys, typing four letters and hitting yet another key is possibly faster or more efficient or in any way means that the person who chooses to do so knows how to use computers versus the person who uses the mouse efficiently and clicks twice to accomplish a task, are you ? Please tell me you are joking.

I'm not...time yourself. Maybe you're a slow typist? I won't be so arrogant to say my way is 100% but I doubt there's many who are faster steering that mouse around.

It really is this sort of pedantic argument against Win8 that makes you guys look foolish. Two whole clicks to shut down instead of one? Give me a break... rolleyes.gif
