Shutting Down Windows 95

Before you turn off your computer, you must shut down Windows to ensure you don't lose any data or configuration. You also can shut down Windows and restart the computer to switch to MS-DOS mode, for example, or to log on to the network under a different name. Following are the Shut Down options available to you in the Shut Down Windows dialog box:

  • Shut Down the Computer Choose this option when you're finished using your computer for the day. When Windows displays a message telling you to shut off your computer, you can safely turn off the machine.

  • Restart the Computer Choose this option to shutdown and then restart the computer in Windows mode. You'll use this option when you've changed configuration in the Control Panel, for example, and you want that configuration to take effect.

  • Restart the Computer in MS-DOS Mode This option shuts down Windows and starts the computer back in DOS mode, with a black screen, white type, and a C-prompt, or command prompt. From the command prompt, you can enter many familiar DOS commands or install DOS applications. See Lesson 17 for more information.

  • Close All Programs and Log On as a Different User Choose this option when you're sharing a computer with someone and they are already logged on to the network. When you choose this option, the network logon dialog box appears in which you can enter your user name and password.
