People literally don't know how to shut their computers off because of Windows 8. That's a pretty fundamental and rage-worthy problem.

Why? A quick Google search gives you the answer in about 30 seconds. Longer than it would take for you to bitch about it ;)

I don't know why you keep responding as if I'm an idiot. I'm talking about average users. I've seen this occur on literally 100% of new Windows 8 purchases. People don't know how to shut the computer down, get frustrated, hunt around for several minutes, and on and on... some people are smart enough to then consult me or other knowledgeable people or google it, sometimes they then forget it and need to do it again... It is absurd that shutting down a computer is not an obvious thing in an easy to find location. That your response is to search Google for it is insane; we are talking about Shut Down. That you keep responding to me as if I don't know 4 ways to shut the computer is pointless; I know -- I'm talking about average and even the majority of power users using 8 for the first number of times.


You can nerd it out all day, respond to me 50 times if you like... I see users immediately getting frustrated and disgusted by 8 on a daily basis. Recommending that they hunt around looking for an answer to a question that was answered for them previously and shouldn't need to be asked is not an answer.
