Actually Windows X and Power Options has nothing at all to do with shutdown options, it simply puts you into the settings for power management like when the computer turns off the screen when plugged in or on battery, when to go to sleep etc.
The Windows Key + X menu has a "Shutdown and Sign Out" menu which was mentioned, Windows Key + X followed by U and it is the same menu you get if you press Windows Key + M and then Alt + F4.

Just another one that I don't think has been mentioned.

Windows X will get you to a menu, arrow down to Power Options from there too.

Just another way of skinning that particular cat.

All the best

You press Windows Key or, if you prefer, Control + Escape, then press tab once and then arrow down to the bottom of that list and you will find Power which contains the commands to sign out, sleep, restart and shutdown.
But as I said many times, it is much easier to either press Windows Key + M to minimize to the desktop and then Alt + F4 or Windows Key + X followed by U both methods get you to the same Power menu.

Hi.

In Windows 10, CTRL+ESC took me to the search box. Hitting DOWN ARROW gave me a list of all the apps. TABbing didn't take me to a shutdown option.

control+escape is the old school equivalent of pressing the windows key,
therefore Milton is correct.

Hi.

If the laptop has Windows 10 on it, CTRL+ESC  won't bring up a shutdown
menu.

To shut down a Windows 10 laptop, do the following.

Hit WINDOWS+D to get to the desktop.

Press ALT+F4 to get to the shutdown options.

Hope this helps.

Find the Insert key and press F4.

If that doesn't work, press Control + Escape and Tab once and arrow down
to Power, press enter and using the arrow key find shutdown.

Hello,

I've just received a laptop with Jaws 2021.

I can't figure out how to shut down the laptop.
