A new tutorial titled How to shut down or restart Windows was added by Lawrence Abrams. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

It is important to know how to properly shut down or restart your computer so that you do not lose data or corrupt important Windows files or Registry locations. Many people think that you shut down your computer simply by pressing the power button. On some configurations, this will work as Windows will recognize that you press the power button and shut it down gracefully. On the other hand, if your computer is not configured to do this, when you press the power button the computer will turn off and any unsaved data in Windows will be lost. Shutting down a computer this way could also cause data corruption on your hard drive or within Windows.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
