Shut Down Windows 8 With A Keyboard Shortcut

One of the features in Windows which takes time to adjust to is the well-concealed shut down and restart option. Luckily, you can avoid the multi-click charms bar with a keyboard shortcut.

If you aren’t fond of having to perform a mouse or touch gesture and multiple clicks just to restart your computer, there’s an old keyboard command you could employ to save yourself the trouble. Simply use Windows-D to head to the desktop, then Alt-F4. That will bring up a dialog with your shutdown options.

Though this shortcut has been around for years, it’s never been more useful than it is now. If you’re having a hard time getting around Windows 8’s UI, check out our guide to the most useful keyboard shortcuts.
