How to Shut down and Restart Windows 8 using only the keyboard

Update June 26 2013: In Windows 8.1 just hit WINDOWS+X+U+U to Shut down your computer. Thanks Microsoft for making this easier in Windows 8.1


I know this tip is not Dynamics NAV related but ever since I upgraded to Windows 8, the only thing that has really been a pain for me, is that I could not Shut Down the computer without using the mouse. Finally I found the solution, so here it is:

Press WINDOWS+M and then press ATL+F4

You will then get this option:


This works both from within Metro UI and normal Desktop.

Finally I’m happy with Windows 8 and it has been a puzzle to me why the Power Button is so well hidden in Windows 8, but just like RDLC reports things are easy to do when you know which buttons to press. Maybe the engineers building Report Designer in Visual Studio are the designers behind the Power Button in Windows 8 as well. I would not be surprised if that was the case Smile

BTW, If you are using Remote Desktop to Windows Server 2012, the same above options work and you get this this option:


Here you even have the option to uncheck “Planned” if you did not plan to close down the computer SmileAnd you need to write a comment why you are shutting down the computer before the “OK” button is available. We have support for 511 characters in this textbox, so don’t be shy explaining why you want to shut down the computer.

You found me

When I started my new blog a few days ago, I was concerned that you guys would not be able find my blog. There are so many NAV blogs out there and finding them all can be challenging. But in 3 days with my first blog post live I can conclude that you did not have any problems finding little me Smile

I’m a sharing guy so let me share the number of hits I got so far. In the 3 days the blog has been live, I now have a little under 5000 hits. This is actually more hits that I used to get in 3 days when blogging on the NAV team blog, so I’m happy and will continue blogging. Thanks guys!!!

Although you might want to follow my blog on Mibuso I suggest you subscribe to the “ Master Site Feed” found here:  
This way you can subscribe to all bloggers on Mibuso and don’t have spend time find new post for all the blogs. Many of you are probably already doing this, but just wanted to give you this little tip.

Also from the blog post stats, I can conclude that none of you are using Bing. Being at Microsoft for 13 years I might have be brainwashed, but I’m only using Bing as my search engine. I rarely use Google, and when I do I realize that what I could not find on Bing, I could not find on Google either. So to me the search engines are pretty much the same, or am I missing out? Bing has an awesome new picture everyday to look at, instead of the letters in Google created in different shapes depending of day of your search.

Maybe you should give another chance?
