Yes, control+alt+delete will bring up the main menu and there you can select shut down or use the Charms Menu, move the mouse cursor top right to bring it up, then select settings, then click power, then shut down

Another Aussie-ism - never heard of a Charms Menu, Kylie. The rest should work, although different versions of Windows sometimes name things differently.

for most computers, it's 5 seconds or so for a hard power shutdown.

I did a Google search on how to shut down Windows 8 and found a zillion others were wondering the same thing about their new operating system. I don't feel so dumb now. :)
And the thing is called the charms bar. First time I've heard that.

The manual? What's that?

Operating systems are supposed to be very intuitive so that one does not need instructions. One reason 4-year-olds can pick up an iPad, for instance, play with it for a while, and figure it out. :)

doesn't charm me in the slightest. i hit the desktop black box to bypass spook house lane altogether. i hope it turns out to be true that microsoft will be allowing dissatisfied windows 8 customers to 'downgrade' back to the windows 7 system if they wish, without charge.

My DH cooked supper tonight. It turned out good, but I got accused of "back seat cooking". Yeah, I wanted him to take the shitake mushrooms out of the frozen mixed vegis before he steamed them. They are really awful steamed and he doesn't even like mushrooms. He couldn't figure out how to open the package of frozen vegis, so he cut off the zip lock closure. I had said it didn't need scissors. I also had the audacity to suggest using the toaster oven, set to warm, to keep the meat warm while he made the sauce (as instructed in the recipe).

He cooked my steak to perfection - rare. He burnt his (he likes his steak well done). By the time I saw how high he had set the burner, I wasn't going to do any more "back seat cooking". Colour me childish, but, serves him right.
