Rebooting A Windows 8 Computer

Microsoft launched their Windows 8 operating system in the fall of 2012 with a lot of new features like the Metro user interface, support for two desktop screens etc. It was the introduction of Metro user interface that changed the overall view of the Windows operating systems from being an icon-based design to a new fresher tile based design that attracted many users to try out the new operating system. However, since users were not able to work with the new design as easily as Microsoft had advertised; they became furious and posted negative reviews about the operating system, which lead to the instant sales drop of Windows 8.

One of the main reasons that made people ditch Windows 8 was the absence of the Start button in the new operating system. Without the Start menu button, many found it difficult to change the settings in the operating system or even shut down or restart their system running on Windows 8. Here we discuss simple tips to reboot Windows 8 operated computers. However, before you go on to follow the instructions given below, make sure that you have saved all your ongoing work in the computer.

In most cases, your device will be accompanied with a Power icon on the screen, tap on the Power button to open the Power Options window, from this dialog box, select the Restart option by clicking or tapping on it for restarting your computer running on the Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 operating system.

However if you are not able to see the Power icon on the screen, no need to worry, just swipe to the left side from the right corner of the device and then click on the Settings tab found there on the screen. From the options shown on the screen, click on the Power tab and then on the Restart button to reboot Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 computers.

You will be able to see that now the Windows 8 operated computer is restarting itself. If you follow this button, the device will restart completely rather than just sleeping. You can also make shortcuts for Restart or Shutdown to the desktop screen on the Windows 8 operated computer, so that you would be able to restart or shutdown your PC by just double clicking or tapping on it.
