Thanks Bruce, my remark was just a cheap jibe at MS for making the shutdown so difficult to find. I only want an instance of Win 8 on my PC so that I will have some idea of what my new members are talking about when they ask about their new (or sometimes first) PC. I run a club for local people, usually of the older generation (like me) who are just starting out in computing! They are bound to ask why it is so complex just to turn the thing off. I fear that many will just press and hold the button on the front of the Case to turn off! Why oh why did MS not just put a tile on the start page? I daresay one can be created, I'll have a look at that later. For my part I'm staying with Win 7
EDIT: Okay have found a tut for creating Shut Down on Start screen but imagine sending this link to a real newbie who is struggling to send an email or similar "simple" task?
