    Edwin, off the subject of this post, but question.... your screen shot shows a panel that looks a lot different than mine. Title is different and options are different. Where is the one you show? Tkx, Dick....

    Me too.............. but Powershell isn't listed. You have to click on Command Prompt-Administrative and then type powershell to get Powershell-Administrative as a Cmd window. Seems like a long way home for such a simple request?
    Oh! Is Power Shell dangerous?

    I didn't either!
    Damn, what else are they hiding from me??
    Not sure about hiding, but, there are also about 15 winkey + another key, shortcuts, which haven't yet been mentioned.
    from my old brain, I would rather use the mouse than remember that lot and maybe some more which might come along.


    They were available in windows 8, and, to a large extent, all work in Windows 10.

    It really is as well as graphic shell, got tired of writing novels just to format a disk in Unix.

    The "Hot Keys" feature has existed in Windows for a very long time.
    It definitely pre-dates XP (probably W98 too but I can't remember that far back).
    Ahh, they actually go back to W95. I started learning them in W98.

    Are you old enough to remember back that far?

    The "Windows Logo + X" menu was only recently introduced (W8.1 I believe).
    It’s referred to as the Power User Task Menu and was introduced in W8. I didn’t know there are “sub-shortcut keys” for the menu. I was arrowing to an item then Enter.

    Mouse vs Keyboard

    Indeed.
    I started using PCs back in the early '80s, however I never used W95.

    I suspected that they might have been in W95, but I can barely remember W98 these days.

    I couldn't remember if it pre-dated the fake Start Menu button.

    In W7, MS changed the way the hot key underline indicator worked.
    It would not appear unless you invoked a menu using a keyboard shortcut (i.e. if you clicked on an item using the mouse, the underline would not show).

    This still may be the way it works in W10.
    My W10 VM only runs in Linux Mint and since I'm in W7 at the moment I can't check.

    Shut Down
    A while ago I had this, (a script to play the music at shutdown), but can't remember or find out how I did it!

    It does work the same way in W10 as it does in W7.

    Internet Explorer 11?


    Is IE11 supposed to appear in the "All Apps" column in the Start Menu?

    I can't find a shortcut anywhere in my b10041 VM.
