I prefer to learn when problems are presented.
I tried discussing today on the phone but the tech
had accent so thick I could not understand him.

I am sure I will be on the phone with them, but i would like to try it first myself.
I like working on pc's and I want to learn the right way to do this. thanks

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?
