Whilst I think Microsoft has done a great job of making the Metro UI in the Windows 8 Consumer Preview easy to use and great for tablet use… There are some things that in my opinion still have to be fixed. It took me quite a while to find out where to do something as simple as shut down or reset a PC.
After a lot of playing around, I accidentally stumbled on the Shut Down feature. Here are the steps.
First, you take the mouse to the lower-right corner and wait for the on-screen menu tab to appear before clicking on Settings.
Next click on the Power button.
Then you finally get to click on Shut Down or Reset.
Compared to the Classic interface you can accomplish the same thing with two clicks, this takes a bit longer and some time to get used to…
