Shutdown using mouse in Windows Developer Preview

    Question

  • I can't work out how you shut down the machine just using the mouse.  With touch you can fire in the settings panel from the right hand side easy enough (although it wasn't the most discoverable when you then need to hit settings to see the power button itself), but I can't for the life of me get the settings panel (or the app bar for that matter) to appear when just using the mouse.  And I'm not going to use short-cut keys either, my wife/mum/aunty Hillary aren't going to remember those.

    Any ideas?

    Move the cursor to the bottom left of the screen and then click Settings.

  • Thank you!

    It needs some kind of UI prompt in that corner when you move the mouse to let the user know to head down there.  Doesn't need to display it when just taking touch inputs.
