you have to mount and unmount drives on the file system to access them. Umount is the unmount command.

It sounds more like esoteric humor meant for quiet snickering. Give us a good belly laugh next. Happy

That's why I posted it as UNIX funny picture. I don't expect people who don't get UNIX or Linux to understand it.

And for that enlightened circle of people who understood them, oh well. hopefully they understand the joke.

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?
