They didn't kill Instagram. So why do you think they will kill WhatsApp?

I think Facebook are doing good as WhatsApp came up with really amazing features [Never to forget that Facebook has wide insights of the world and population which can be utilized for the betterment of our beloved app --for-pc-download-windows-7-8-computer-laptop.

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?
