On Windows XP we had Win , U + U
On Windows 7 we had Win , Right cursor + Enter
I never had Windows 8, so I am not sure what the shortcut is/was.
There is Alt+F4 and then Enter, but this only works from the desktop. I would like to do this from any 'position' or 'place' or within any program. If I were in an application and did this, I'd only close down that application.
My question is, is there a keyboard combination (which does not rely on creating scripting files and global shortcuts), to shutdown the PC in three or less keyboard keystrokes from any position/program. Also, is there a similarly short key sequence for restart?
