I was doing Cobol, Fortran, and RPG (Report Program Generator) in the early 70s on an IBM 360! Collators! Writing the language/instructions on paper! Then punching cards! Logic gates! Flip-flops! Six layer disk drives the size of a small car!!

Then there was DOS, then MS-DOS, and DOS-something else.

I'm too old. In almost 40 years, why am I still typing and not speaking?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
