Hi Murrar. To shut down or restart your computer, open Start menu by clicking the Start button. Then click Shut Down. Windows 7 will not ask "Are you sure?"...so be careful clicking Shut Down. After you click it, Win 7 will immediately close all open programs, log you off and shut down your computer.

If you want to restart Win 7, open Start menu and click the tiny right arrow button next to the Shut Down button. In the drop-down list that opens, click Restart.

That's it.

I see you have over 100 posts here, so clearly you are not new to computing. Are you experiencing some difficulty with restarting the system?

Murrar has recently upgraded from WinXP to Win7. Right now, he is going through a new OS learning curve.

That's fine, and my previous post wasn't meant to be anything other than a question. Since there is essentially no difference in how to log off in recent versions of the OS I'm curious to know if the OP is running into a problem.
