Tekzilla Daily: Shut down Windows like a proSkip the tedium of clicking the Start button and mousing over to "System Shutdown" in Windows. Turn off Windows like a pro and use a simple key combo instead.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Well, hello again. Welcome to Tekzilla Daily, I'm Veronica Belmont. Today's tip comes from our biggest fan Joe. He writes, "I stumbled cross a nice little quick shutdown option in Windows Vista, that works on XP too." Everyone should know by now that if you press Alt F4 to close an application. Well, if you press Alt F4, when no app has focused or when all apps are closed, then you get the good old shut down box with all your options. Thanks Joe. And to take the focus away from all applications, just click on the empty space in your taskbar. So that key combo will bring up the shut down menu immediately. Or you can use the tip we showed you in episodes 67 and hit the Windows key plus D to minimize all your windows in one fell swoop.
