Re: What's the keystroke combo for...

Last night, I used Windows-X-U-U, and that worked. There
must be a lot of ways, but I have been using Alt-F4 ever
since I've had Windows programs - 2004.

Bye for now,

Using Alt+F4 from the desktop or taskbar or the Windows
Key+X method seems to be the only one that is universal. If
I do what you describe, Joseph, press Windows Key and tab
once I am on the Microphone button and arrowing does

This method isn't working on my computer. However, if I do:

1. Press Windows key.,
2. Tab once.
3. Press down arrow three times.
4. Press ENTER.

Then I'm presented with options. To me, this proves that
other alternatives are more reliable at this time.

I hit the windows key, tab twice to start button, arrow down
4 times to "power" and hit enter, then arrow down twice to
"shut down", or three times to "restart".

You may recall some forums talking about inability

This is because the overall layout of the Start menu has
changed from prior Windows 10 releases (and this is why
using the Start menu method is unreliable). I can tell you
that certain parts of Start menu (and majority of Windows+X
menu shortcuts) has changed in Creators Update (the next

I'd say Windows+X method is more reliable and is
fast, as this can be invoked from anywhere, with
desktop/Alt+F4 method being a good backup procedure.

The Windows key followed by up arrow twice does not
work for me, I think it depends on how you have customized
your start menu screen.

Definitely Alt+F4 from the desktop works, but
Windows Key+X followed by U and then by "U" or "R" depending
on whether you want to shutdown or restart works
consistently for me as well. Not sure, Joseph, why it isn't
reliable for you.

From anywhere, just press Windows Key. I follow
with up arrow twice.

That puts you on the Power Button. Pressing it
gives you the choice of restarting, shutting down, or
putting the laptop into "sleep" mode.

What's the keystroke sequence for shutting down
Win10 properly?

if it's related to disk scanning and repair there is

typically get pages and pages of examples. You can
