Windows 7: Why is the logout button so difficult to find?

Why is the logout button so difficult to find?

The topic is self explanatory.
I had a difficult time finding the logout button in the beginning.
Why is that way?

Hello Enduser,

Not so self explanatory.

If you mean for this website, then I'm not sure why it was so difficult since there's a "log out <your-username>" link at the bottom of every page in this site.

Oops. I've been here six months and never noticed that.

I think the thing is people are accustomed to seeing it near the top right somewhere.

Depends on the site skin you're using.

Still haven't confirmed if the OP's referring to the site's logout, or Windows.

If it's this site however, I do agree that looking for a small font sized text that says "log out" at the bottom of my screen isn't the most user friendly way of doing it.

But thanks to my setting in Firefox (Search for text when I start typing), I have no problems whatsoever when logging out from different sites and forums.

Tks. I have experimented with it and I see there is quite a difference. If I use one of those "Black2 themes, it certainly is difficult to read the small logout at the bottom. My default has been for a long time "SF Blue" No problems there!

If it is related to "log out" of this forum, my question is:"why would you"?
Sevenforums IS the internet. Like the Metallica song "Nothing else matters".

On a serious note, with the skin i use, it is at the bottom, like mentioned above.
