Chapter 11. Computer Software > Shutting Down Windows

Shutting Down Windows

The bottom option on the Start menu is Shut Down. Although there is nothing to stop you from just switching off the computer, doing so without choosing the Shut Down procedure may result in lost data and corrupted files.

When you choose Shut Down, the screen dims and a new menu appears that gives you several options. Here you can click the Yes button to shut down, or make another selection first, then click Yes. If you choose to shut down, Windows will spend a few moments closing files, then will display a screen informing you that it is OK to turn off the power.
