For a typical Microsoft Windows user, shutting down a computer is very simple for you can always find the shut down option once you open the start menu. It’s just a few clicks away, as shut down option can be found once you open the start menu. However, in Windows 8, the new version of Microsoft Windows operating system a bit of changes has been made, you will not see the shutdown button on the start menu or better known now as the metro view.
