Here in this article, I have listed 3 ways to shutdown/restart/logoff your windows 8 machine:
1. Switch to the desktop view and press ALT + F4 to bring shutdown menu.
2. Press the shortcut key Win+C, go to Settings – > Power – > Shut down.
3. Create Simple Tiles on your windows 8 desktop to shutdown/restart/logoff your machine:
Enter createButtons.vbs – this is a simple utility (or rather a script) that will automatically add Shut Down and other related buttons to your Windows 8 screen. There’s no installation required – just download the file to your desktop and double-click to create the various buttons.
