Humor Break (Probably a repeat but always a good reminder)

Words Women use.

"FINE"
This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

"FIVE MINUTES"
If she is getting dressed, this is half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given 5 more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

"NOTHING"
This is the calm before the storm. This means "something," and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with 'Nothing' usually end in
"Fine"

"GO AHEAD"
This is a dare, not permission. Don't do it.

*LOUD SIGH*
This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you
over "Nothing"

"THAT'S OKAY"
This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

"THANKS"
A woman is thanking you. Do not question it or faint. Just say "you're welcome."

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?
